28 “But that servant went out and found one of his fellow servants who owed him a hundred denarii; and he laid hands on him and took him by the throat, saying, ‘Pay me what you owe!’ 29 So his fellow servant fell down [a]at his feet and begged him, saying, ‘Have patience with me, and I will pay you [b]all.’ 30 And he would not, but went and threw him into prison till he should pay the debt. 31 So when his fellow servants saw what had been done, they were very grieved, and came and told their master all that had been done. 32 Then his master, after he had called him, said to him, ‘You wicked servant! I forgave you (A)all that debt because you begged me. 33 Should you not also have had compassion on your fellow servant, just as I had pity on you?’ 34 And his master was angry, and delivered him to the torturers until he should pay all that was due to him.

He who does not love does not know God, for God is love. (A)In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten (B)Son into the world, that we might live through Him. 10 In this is love, (C)not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son (D)to be the propitiation for our sins. 11 Beloved, (E)if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.

Seeing God Through Love

12 (F)No one has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God abides in us, and His love has been perfected in us. 13 (G)By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. 14 And (H)we have seen and testify that (I)the Father has sent the Son as Savior of the world. 15 (J)Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. 16 And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and (K)he who abides in love abides in God, and God (L)in him.
