(26) The unforgiving debtor

Jesus continued with his teaching,
"The kingdom of heaven can be compared to a king
who decided to bring his accounts up to date with
servant who had borrowed millions of dollars from him.
But the man fell down before the king and begged him.,
Then the king felt pity for him, and
released him and forgave his debt.
But when the man left the king,
he went to a fellow servant who owed him a few thousand dollars.
He grabbed him by the throat and demanded instant payment.
When the other servants saw this, they were very upset.
So they went to see the king and informed him what had happened.
Then the king called in the man he had forgiven and said,
"You evil servant! I forgave your debt.
Shouldn't you have mercy on your servant,
just as I had mercy on you?
Then the king sent the man to prison
until he had paid every penny."
