They argue all the time with others. They give little ground to others and grant themselves all the ground. But we should rather show mercy to others today. When the time of judgment comes, there will be some whom even the Lord of judgment will not be able to hold anything against.
How Mercy and Judgment Fit Together
It simply means that if you are merciful to others while you are living on earth, God will be merciful to you. Your mercy today will triumph over your judgment tomorrow. The way you judge others will be the way that you will be judged. This grace is righteous. The way you treat others will be the way that the Lord will treat you. The way you treat others will fashion for you a vessel, with which God will measure out judgment to you. James says, "For the judgment is without mercy to him who has shown no mercy; mercy triumphs over judgment.
But those who show mercy to others will triumph over judgment.
Your mercy will surpass the judgment. This is an amazing fact.
Mercy Triumphs Over Judgment
If they do, they will have to remain there until they pay off all their debts. Of course, there is no way to pay off all the debts. But at least one day they will learn to be merciful and to forgive others in the same way that the Lord showed mercy to them and forgave them. By then they will still have to show mercy to others. Hence, in verse 35 the Lord says, "So also will My heavenly Father do to you if each of you does not forgive his brother from your hearts.
It shows the relationship between the heavenly Father and His children and the relationship between the brothers. Prior to this portion of the Word, Peter asked the Lord, "How often shall my brother sin against me and I forgive him?
Up to seven times? The Lord told him that he should forgive up to seventy times seven. Then the Lord spoke the word about the two slaves. Peter will face chastisement if he does not forgive his brother.
MERCY AND JUDGMENT
The word of the Lord shows Peter that there is the possibility that he could be thrown to the torturers. He is also a God who is patient with sinners and shows mercy. Divine judgment is never executed without cause and is always preceded by mercy. When the people of Nineveh repented and God showed mercy, Jonah was offended.

Ever since creation, God has revealed Himself through what He has made. Divine judgment is not the exercise of indiscriminate rage directed against the unsuspecting and undeserving. The answer is found in Jesus Christ. The fact that Christ suffered vividly reminds us that sin must be punished.
The fact that Christ suffered for us demonstrates His mercy.
