Impossible debt

Verse of the day:
Therefore the kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who wished to settle accounts with his servants. Matthew 18:23

At first glance, the verse of the day may seem bad. The fact that servants can not pay their master any debts, therefore probably angering the master and getting punished.

But it serves to remind us of the opposite. God is a master, yes, and we re like his servants, yes, who cannot pay back our debt of sin to him.

But he grants us mercy and grace and he paid the debt back for us.

I am thinking about this today, and this makes me joyful. I so often sin or make a mess of my life, but I always know he will grant me grace and mercy.

Praying for you guys!
