Online Sunday School – 8/9/20

Matthew 28:21-25

  • What words or lines jump out to you in the text? Why?
  • How would you define forgiveness?
  • Do you relate to any of the characters in the parable? If so, which one and why?
  • Who suffered more as a result of the lack of forgiveness: the servant who refused to forgive or the one who didn’t receive it?
  • How would you summarize the moral of the story and how does it apply to us today?
  • How does forgiveness work? i.e. What does it look like in a relationship?
  • The Greek word used for “forgive” literally can be translated as “to send away,” “to let go” or “to release.” How does that help us understand what it means to forgive someone?
  • When we don’t forgive someone, who suffers as a consequence of the lack of forgiveness?
  • Is forgiving someone something we can just choose to do whenever we want? Why or why not?
  • Who is one person in your life that you could take a step towards forgiving them this week? What would that practically look like for you?
