Pray To Be Saved

21st Sunday after Pentecost 2016

In today’s gospel the Master of the House forgave a debt owed by the servant which was far in excess of his ability to pay.  But that servant went out and demanded that one of his debtors repay a much smaller dept and showed no mercy in the process.  So, the Master handed the first servant over to the torturers until he paid all that was due.  Is this what will happen to us at the Last Judgment because we do not show Mercy and Forgiveness to those who have hurt us?  Indeed, we are told that we must love our enemies and do good to those who hurt us because as the Lord’s Prayer says:  …”forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.”   Implicit in this message is the fact that we must pray in order to be saved because it is unlikely that one who does not pray will show mercy and forgiveness to others.
