First Sunday in Lent Worship Service
Jesus used parables, simple day-to-day stories, to illustrate spiritual lessons. The word Parable comes from the Greek παραβολή (parabolē), literally “throwing” (bolē), “alongside” (para-) – or “to come alongside.” In this Lenten Season, we want to come alongside Jesus to learn about what it means to “forgive always,” “treat everyone generously,” “accounting for our life,” and “do for the least of the world.”
Text: Matthew 18: 21-35, Parable of the Unforgiving Servant
Title: Forgive Always
Synopsis: Jesus said, forgive seventy times seven. In other words, we are to forgive always. If we forgive, we can live in harmony with others and ourselves.
