The Parable of the Friend
The Teacher said "Simon, I have something to tell you"
Simon said, "Teacher, say on."
"A certain lender had two debtors. The one owed five hundred denarii, and the other , who was a friend, fifty. When they couldn't pay, he forgave the friend, and had the other thrown into a debtors prison. Which of them therefore will love him most?"
"He, I suppose, who was his friend, because for the sake of their friendship, he cancelled their debt as if it had never happened."
The teacher turned to him:
"You have judged correctly. To whom little is forgiven, the same is usually a friend. Therefore I tell you, their sins, which were many, are forgiven, for it would not do to have a scandal among friends."
And he said to them:
"Greater love hath no man, that he put a friend before a stranger".
