Humility is a characteristic that is difficult to find in today’s society. As followers of Jesus Christ, we are to be humble. In this passage, Jesus gives instruction to his followers including a parable about what it means to be his humble servant.
In this passage we find four areas of instruction:
- A warning about causing someone to stumble (vv. 1-2)
- The need for a forgiving spirit (vv 3-4)
- The issue of faith (5-6)
- The parable of the humble servant (7-10)
