Matthew 18—Galilee. •Pride: the inquiry of pride (the disciples want to know who is the greatest in the kingdom); the illustration for pride (Christ uses a child to illustrate the need of humility regarding heavenly matters); instruction for pride (Christ warns of mistreatment of the little ones who represent humility). •Polity: Christ instructs about dealing with the belligerent and the process of disciplining such an one in the church. •Pardon: this subject takes up over half the chapter. It involves the inquiry by Peter about forgiveness and the illustration by a parable of forgiveness. –Butler’s Daily Bible Reading
