(Luke 7:36-50) A quick note for today. It’s amazing how especially as men our logic gets in the way. The kind of love that Christ calls us to is really beyond what logic can understand. When the sinful woman wept at Jesus feet and washed them with her tears Simon the Pharisee began using his logic to make judgement about who Christ was. In those times the religious figures didn’t associate with people like that woman, so logic would deduce that Christ wasn’t who he said he was. However, what Jesus offered was forgiveness, and that forgiveness and love went against the norm of that time, and usually against norms in general.
What amazing love that Christ shows us, and even calls us to. I pray that the Holy Spirit would work daily in my heart to help me show that kind of love to all.
