Matthew 18:23-25. To Be Sold: Me 26 Jul 2023
Mat 18:23 And so the kingdom of Heaven may be compared to a king
who decided to settle his accounts with his servants.
24 When the reckoning began,
they brought him a man who owed ten thousand talents;
25 he had no means of paying,
so his master gave orders that he should be sold,
together with his wife and children
and all his possessions, to meet the debt.

Assume I have a debt to God and I can't pay. I am to be sold together with my wife. Why should Millet suffer for my debts?
To whom would God sell us? Millet is precious and valuable. Perhaps some angel would like to buy her. But who would be willing to pay a price for me? And where would I end up? The Devil might like my soul, although I would not know why.
Jesus, what is my debt and what is my value?
