We are all sinners.
No human being sits in spiritual judgement over another.
The scripture passage above is followed by a parable and finally with Jesus comparing the woman’s love for him as greater than that of his host.
Of what little she had of value she gave all out of faith and love.
How often does organized religion like the Pharisee's of this passage label who we should and should not allow to love us - who is acceptable in God’s eyes ~ too often in my experience.
Today in our worship service God as a gardener was discussed and this passage was read.
God did not/ does not plant seeds of love and faith once in a human lifetime.
The opportunities to find and to know spiritual love is always present.
God is sowing seeds of love and forgiveness wherever we travel each day of our lives.
There is no place we can go that God’s love is not there if we have the faith to see and accept.
There is no sinner so corrupt that God will turn love and forgiveness away.
“This is why I tell you that her many sins have been forgiven; so she has shown great love. The one who is forgiven little loves little” Luke 7:47
