Today’s passage: Luke 7:36-50
- Jesus ate with sinners, including Simon the Pharisee.
- When this woman came into the room, there were now two sinners presented. Only one of them saw themselves accurately.
- If you think Jesus didn’t have to suffer that much for your sin on the cross, you won’t appreciate and love Him rightly.
Questions to consider:
- What should be on the forefront of our minds after reading this passage, how we compare with the sinfulness of others or how we compare with the righteousness of God? Which matters?
- Is there anyone who really only owes “50 denarii”? How does a right view of our sinful helplessness give us a fervent love for Christ?
- How could Simon the Pharisee’s rebuke of Jesus bring us conviction? In what ways might we be living and viewing people more through the eyes of an unbelieving Pharisee? How did Jesus view these people? Who received forgiveness and salvation?
