Debt

Can You Pay?

Jesus tells a story of a debt that was owed in Matthew 18:23-35, and forgiveness and unforgiveness. Essentially saying, that as often as you are sinned against, you are to forgive. In the story one man had a very large debt, ten thousand talents, which was forgiven-and which today equals about six billion dollars. Another man owed a small debt to the man that was forgiven his large debt, but the man would not forgive the debt and had the man that owed a small debt thrown into prison.

We are all ten-thousand-talent debtors to God. Not a day passes without each of us sinning many times in thought, word, deed, or motive.
