Summer Series at First Baptist:

The parables of Jesus from the Gospel According to Matthew.

Jesus engaged listeners with his parables. They weren’t straightforward and required reflection. Even after hearing the same story time after time, there seems to be still more. Jesus also used them to present people with a choice. Would they hear and understand? Would they listen?

We are all humbled and grateful to God that he forgives us. It can be harder to accept when God turns around and then requires us to forgive others. This week’s parable about withholding forgiveness ends with an uncompromising and severe warning.
