Listen from:
Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellow servant, even as I had pity on thee?
In this similitude of the kingdom the debtor who was forgiven the 10,000 talent debt would not forgive his fellow servant who owed him 100 pence. Our Lord does not say that you ought to forgive your brother because the offense which he has committed against you is insignificant; a 100 pence debt was a very large debt in those days. You may be very deeply hurt by something that someone else has done to you; the Lord understands that. He only asks you to consider that which He has forgiven you.
