Luke 7:44-50 (NIV)
Then he turned toward the woman and said to Simon, “Do you see this woman? I came into your house. You did not give me any water for my feet, but she wet my feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair. You did not give me a kiss, but this woman, from the time I entered, has not stopped kissing my feet. You did not put oil on my head, but she has poured perfume on my feet. Therefore, I tell you, her many sins have been forgiven—for she loved much. But he who has been forgiven little loves little.”
Then Jesus said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.”
The other guests began to say among themselves, “Who is this who even forgives sins?”
Jesus said to the woman, “Your faith has saved you; go in peace.”
Whatever happened to hospitality among God’s people?
Have you noticed there are a few times when Jesus forgives sins after the person doesn’t even ask for it? “Father, forgive them, they don’t know what they are doing.” The paralytic lowered through the roof in Mark 2.
How much have you been forgiven? How much do you love Jesus?
Would you express your love and devotion to Jesus in a humiliating and public way?
I get a kick out of the FailBlog, with bloopers and funny pictures. Can you think of any other Bible stories that could be described as a “Fail.”
