People's Bible Notes for Matthew 18:31


Mt 18:31 His fellowservants . . . were very sorry. Unmerciful treatment of the unfortunate is always wont to excite compassion. The servants were not only sorry for their wretched comrade, but they carried the case to their lord. It is always proper to carry the wrongs of fellow-beings which we cannot redress to our Heavenly Father.

Discussion for Matthew 18

  • I, even I, am that Michael Isaac Dale:
    How is it that you boast of yourself, saying, By my own sight I did much! and, By my own hand I obtained much! Yet ye ignore the grace of God then, and confess not your own sins now: saying, God is all powerful and no man can resist his will, so why should I repent? Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus?

    Tsk tsk... Those of you pushing denominational worship and "rule of the church" are actually WRONG... Many times over the Holy Bible warns of "the sects" and being "decieved by false teachings"... I mean according to each denomination, everyone else is doomed to the lake of fire... Nowhere in the Bible does it state that we must report to a designated building to worship him...
  • David
    Jesus teaches us in this chapter to cut of anything or anyone who tempts us in life. But also a few verses down He teaches that if he is our brother or sister in Christ, before we cut them of there are steps of trying to help them. If those steps don't work, only then cut them off. Praise God for this wisdom!
