Bible story: The unforgiving servant

Creative activities based on the Bible story of The unforgiving servant

The Parable of the Unforgiving Servant is a story told by Jesus in Matthew 18:23-34. In this parable, a king forgives the debt of a servant who owes him an enormous amount of money. However, that same servant refuses to forgive a fellow servant who owes him a much smaller amount of money. When the king finds out, he becomes angry and throws the unforgiving servant in jail.

This parable teaches us about the importance of forgiveness and the consequences of unforgiveness. It challenges us to examine our own hearts and to be willing to forgive others just as we have been forgiven by God. It emphasizes the need to extend grace and mercy to others, as we have received it from God.
