Patience, Mercy, Forgiveness.2

"A certain man was reviewing the accounts of two men who had borrowed money. One owed him five hundred gold pieces, while the other owed him fifty. Knowing that neither had any means of repaying him, he compassionately forgave both of their debts. Which of these two men do you suppose was the most grateful?"
--Jesus

Gold is the most stable asset the world has ever seen. In 1970 you could buy a nice men’s suit for 1 ounce of gold for $35.
Today, you can still buy a nice men’s suit for 1 ounce of gold, but $35 will only buy you a nice t-shirt.


The national median home price is currently $166,100 or 90.51 ounces of gold! A 1 oz. old bullion coin is about the size of a U.S. half dollar.

So at today's prices the one man's debt was $917,500.00; the other $91,750. 

 That's a lot of houses, suits and shirts...

Forgiveness is costly!
