About Today Readings

Daniel 3:25, 34-43. Remember your mercies, O Lord – Psalm 24(25):4-9. Matthew 18:21-35.

Treat everyone with dignity, respect and trust

Today’s Gospel is interesting in that Jesus not only tells his listeners that they need to forgive and do so countless times, he also tells them to treat everyone with dignity, respect and trust. The master trusted his servant to pay the money back. He saw the dignity in the servant and trusted him to do the right thing. The servant was not able to do the same for his fellow servant. How often do we become caught in our own world and so not treat others as we ask to be treated? Do we want to be forgiven for our wrongdoing, mistakes and slip ups and yet hold grudges against those who have done us wrong?
