Forgiveness and The Parable of the Unforgiving Servant

Forgiveness and The Parable of the Unforgiving Servant

Reflection on the Gospel of the Twenty-Fourth Sunday
In Ordinary Time

 

Matthew 18: 21-35

Love your neighbour as yourself and forgive thy neighbour as you would expect to be forgiven. This is the summary of what Jesus declares in today’s Gospel. It is said, to err is human and to forgive divine. Forgiveness is a crucial Christian value. We follow our role model, Christ himself in being forgiving. But what is forgiveness and why do we need to forgive?
Being forgiving toward a person who has offered us doesn’t just benefit them it also is meant to benefit the victim of the offense.  To forgive the offender is to free oneself of being imprisoned by hurt caused by the oppressor. True forgiveness is when you may remember the hurt caused but do not expect to get vengeance or gossip toward the oppressor or are happy to see the downfall of the oppressor.
Forgiveness is the antitode for a wounded soul.
