ABOUT THIS PARABLE

- Story Origin: Original
- Setting: Suburban American neighborhood
- God would have us love our enemies and repay wrongs with kindness.

- Key Bible Verse: Romans 12:17-19 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written” It is mine to avenge, I will repay, says the Lord.
