“A certain creditor had two debtors; one owed five hundred denarii, and the other fifty. When they could not pay, he canceled the debts for both of them. Now which of them will love him more?”

Have you ever experienced having a debt cancelled? What changed for you when that happened? What was different? What tensions eased or challenges lessened? How did you feel about the one who cancelled the debt? How did your relationship change after that point, if it did? Did the size of the debt affect how you felt about it? Is it true in your own experience that forgiveness and love are interrelated?
