Parable of the forgiven Debt (Matthew 18) | Craft 2

 

This craft is really just a bit of fun rather than something deep and theological, it depicts the three characters in the parable of the forgiven debt or unforgiving servant. Once made it can be a storytelling prop, a way to ask deeper questions about forgiveness, or just a toy to play with. Parable of the forgiven Debt (Matthew 18) | Craft 2

Parable of the forgiven Debt (Matthew 18) | Craft 1

 

There is nothing quite like acting out a simple story and this story of the forgiven debt is perfect for that. These finger puppets are so simple with the only mildly difficult bit being cutting the bars of the prison – and you could skip that at a push! They have finger holes but you could stick them onto popsicle sticks instead if you prefer. If you have a 1.5cm circle punch then they really can be made in a matter of minutes.

Parable of the forgiven Debt (Matthew 18)-Play

 

The Parable Jesus tells here is super simple and yet very deep. We all expect the senior servant to forgive the debt of the lower servant because we expect him to continue passing on the blessings, it jars at us that he would not do so. These games tie into that idea of flowing from one to another and the key theme of forgiveness.

Today’s hero is the servant because he shows us the gift of Forgiveness

Essential Teachers notes:
This parable of Jesus is probably not the most popular with many, especially not bankers, but the kind of radical forgiveness it displays is sorely needed in today’s world. The idea of burning your last bridges, squandering your last chance, and ‘no way back’ are rife and yet God never shuts that door to us and asks us to not shut that door to others. If you have older kids it’s worth reminding them that forgive means to not hold it over someone’s head but not to necessarily forget – the king would have been wise to hesitate before lending the man more – equally forgiveness is granted when requested on our knees, acknowledging our shortcomings, not given automatically.
