Forgiveness: A Christian Duty
11 July 2021 AM – Luke 17:1-10 – Parables21 – Scott Childs
Introduction: Two little boys had quarrelled. But the next morning, Johnny took his cap and headed for Bobby’s house again. Surprised, his mother said, “What! Going to play with him again? I thought you quarrelled only last evening and were never going to have anything more to do with each other.”
Johnny looked a little sheepish, dug his toe into the carpet for a moment, then flashed a satisfied smile as he hurried away. “Oh, Bobby and I are good forgivers.” (Source unknown, edited slightly)
Transition: Here in Luke 17, I want to uncover what Jesus said about our Christian duty to forgive so that we might become good forgivers.
