The Topic of Teenagers Open Heavens for Tuesday 5 Th December 2023 Is “Show Mercy”

Read: Matthew 18:23-35

23 Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take account of his servants.

24 And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which owed him ten thousand talents.

25 But forasmuch as he had not to pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and children, and all that he had, and payment to be made.

26 The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.

27 Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed him, and forgave him the debt.

28 But the same servant went out, and found one of his fellowservants, which owed him an hundred pence: and he laid hands on him, and took him by the throat, saying, Pay me that thou owest.

29 And his fellowservant fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying, Have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.

30 And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the debt.

31 So when his fellowservants saw what was done, they were very sorry, and came and told unto their lord all that was done.

32 Then his lord, after that he had called him, said unto him, O thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all that debt, because thou desiredst me:

33 Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee?

34 And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him.

35 So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses.

Memorise: Matthew 5:7

Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

We live in a judgemental world where people pass judgement on offenders as though they would have done better if found in the same circumstance, It’s un-Christian to do that.

The story in today’s Bible passage shows a servant who owed his master some money. The master had mercy on him when he begged to be pardoned and told him to forget about paying the debt. However, this same servant went ahead to punish the person owing him a smaller amount of money than what he owed his own master. The master heard of it and punished him severely till he paid the debt he had earlier forgiven him of. The question is, are you like this servant?

Mercy is an attribute of God. Imagine if God punished us for every mistake we made, who would be left in this world? So, has anyone offended you and you have vowed never to forgive them? You need to show mercy today so that you too can receive mercy.

KEY POINT

Your Heavenly Daddy is merciful: copy Him.

HYMN 21 – I Want To Be Like Jesus

  1. I want to be like Jesus,
    So lowly and so meek;
    For no one mark’d an angry word,
    That ever heard Him speak,
  2. I want to be like Jesus,
    So frequently in prayer;
    Alone upon the mountain top,
    He met his Father there.
  3. I want to be like Jesus,
    I never, never find
    That He, though persecuted was
    To anyone unkind.
  4. I want to be like Jesus,
    Engaged in doing good;
    So that of me it may be said
    “He hath done what he could.”
  5. I want to be like Jesus,
    Who sweetly said to all,
    “Let little children come to Me;”
    I would obey the call.
  6. But oh I’m not like Jesus,
    As anyone may see;
    O gentle Saviour, send Thy grace,
    And make me like to Thee
