Dad's Day: Earthly Memories Fade, Father's Forgiveness Endures

Earthly Memories Fade, Father’s Forgiveness Endures

Posted: June 14, 2014 at 1:30 a.m.

Jesus told the story of a man who owed someone a lot of money but just couldn't pay it. The man who was owed the debt completely forgave the debtor. The man who was forgiven then turned to a third man -- who owed him a very small amount -- and demanded reimbursement for what was owed. Through this story, Jesus was illustrating how generous God, our Father, is with us in forgiving us for our many wrongdoings, so we, in turn, should forgive others.
