God is SERIOUS (about forgiving)

 
Hey,
 
I’m sitting here reading my Bible tonight, and came across a few interesting examples of how serious God is about forgiving others. This is one of the reasons why I love reading the stories in the bible because you get to see how God is and how he interacted with REAL PEOPLE from the Bible. The stories are REAL, and not only that, its written in words that WE ALL can understand. All you have to do is VISION it in your head, or do what I do, with each word I read, I “video tape it” and make up people to play the parts.
 
I want you all to read the Scriptures below and actually visualize it in your mind. God is VERY SERIOUS about forgiving others. Someone can do something so wrong in our minds, and that’s fine, BUT GOD MAKES IT CLEAR, that you can go to work, play with your family and pets, go out to dinner with your friends, make love to your husbands and wives, cook dinner, and enjoy all the good things in LIFE. BUT FORGIVING, is something God takes seriously. So read this and be VERY AFRAID if you have not forgiven someone. THIS IS NOT FOR YOU, if you can/will/and have NO problems doing so, but for others, READ AND TAKE THIS AS A WARNING.
The Parable of the Unmerciful Servant

 21 Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive someone who sins against me? Up to seven times?”  22 Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.[a]

   23 “Therefore, the kingdom of heaven is like a king who wanted to settle accounts with his servants. 24 As he began the settlement, a man who owed him ten thousand bags of gold[b] was brought to him. 25 Since he was not able to pay, the master ordered that he and his wife and his children and all that he had be sold to repay the debt.

   26 “The servant fell on his knees before him. ‘Be patient with me,’ he begged, ‘and I will pay back everything.’ 27 The servant’s master took pity on him, canceled the debt and let him go.

   28 “But when that servant went out, he found one of his fellow servants who owed him a hundred silver coins.[c] He grabbed him and began to choke him. ‘Pay back what you owe me!’ he demanded.

   29 “His fellow servant fell to his knees and begged him, ‘Be patient with me, and I will pay you back.’

   30 “But he refused. Instead, he went off and had the man thrown into prison until he could pay the debt. 31 When the other servants saw what had happened, they were greatly distressed and went and told their master everything that had happened.

   32 “Then the master called the servant in. ‘You wicked servant,’ he said, ‘I canceled all that debt of yours because you begged me to. 33 Shouldn’t you have had mercy on your fellow servant just as I had on you?’ 34 In anger his master handed him over to the jailers to be tortured, until he should pay back all he owed.

   35 “This is how my heavenly Father will treat each of you unless you forgive a brother or sister from your heart.”
