Summary

Jesus tells his listeners a parable about a servant who owed an incredible (3.5 Billion or more) debt.  The debt of the servant was canceled by the King.  The servant was released.  He then goes out and finds a fellow servant who owes him around 5-6 thousand dollars and begins choking him.  Pastor Matt said that in forgiveness we often try to muster up the emotional energy to get past some offense. Forgiveness is more like good accounting than mustering emotional energy.
