I Suppose…

Today a Pharisee who invited Jesus to dine with him could only see sin in a woman who sat at the foot of Jesus, bathed His feet with her tears, wiped them clean with her hair, never ceased kissing His feet and anointed His feet with ointment.

He was so righteous that he could only see her sin and none of his own. Jesus says something so simple that anyone could answer…

“Two people were in debt to a certain creditor; one owed five hundred days’ wages and the other owed fifty. Since they were unable to repay the debt, he forgave it for both. Which of them will love him more?”

The Pharisee’s answer?…

“The one, I suppose, whose larger debt was forgiven.”

Thank you Mr. Pharisee!!! You have helped me to realize more fully the extremely large debt of my sins that have been covered by the blood of Jesus. Your sins, Mr. Pharisee killed Jesus! My sins, Mr. Pharisee killed Jesus! I suppose Mr. Pharisee, that if we both get on our knees in humble repentance that we both might hear the words that the sinful woman you despised heard from Jesus…

“Your sins are forgiven.”

Alleluia, thank you Jesus!
