Parables expose our cherished privileges and teach us Kingdom values in straightforward terms. We have been forgiven much, but where does that leave us then? It is not easy to forgive others for what they have done, ourselves for our own mistakes and sometimes even God for when things don’t work out the way we hoped. It’s not supposed to be easy! Forgiveness might not fix things overnight, but it does leave the door open for God to do what God does.
