Luke 7 invites us to dine at the table of contrast. We witness Christ in relation to two people, both equally loved by the One who sent His Son to dinner that night. Take a moment to read that Scripture passage. 

First we sit across from the Pharisee. Try to avoid stereotyping him. Many Pharisees were devoutly righteous men of God. Some were hypocrites, but others were genuine, striving desperately to keep the law.

The Pharisee who invited Christ to dinner possessed volumes of scriptural knowledge. He could have recited literally hundreds of verses. He coud have debated every Old Testament subject with intelligence and confidence. Let’s give him the benefit of the doubt and assume he was a good man—and probably a curious man.

The host and his guest scarcely had time to greet each other and get comfortable before an intruder walked through the door.

The host was appalled that a woman of the streets would enter his home. Imagine his embarrassment when the uninvited guest got down on her knees, wept at Christ’s feet, and anointed them with perfume!


After delivering a mental verdict of “guilty” over her, the Pharisee placed Christ on the stand as well. He judged, “If this man were a prophet, he would know who is touching him and what kind of woman she is—that she is a sinner” (Luke 7:39).

I wonder if just once the Pharisee had ever used the term to describe himself. You see, to a man who lived a righteous life, the word never applied to him—always to someone else. The Pharisee could not comprehend the sinful woman’s actions because he could not comprehend the depth of her love.

He had everything to offer Christ that evening: a spotless record, knowledge, stimulating conversation—but he had no love. She had nothing to offer Christ that evening but a terrible record. She was almost assuredly illiterate, and she couldn’t talk for crying.

But she had love.

We could interpret this encounter to mean the more we sin, the more we’ll love Jesus. It seems to support depraved living as the key to deep loving. Not so!

The woman’s deep love did not flow from deep sin. It flowed from deep forgiveness.

“Therefore, I tell you, her many sins have been forgiven—for she loved much. But he who has been forgiven little loves litte.” (Luke 7:47)

The level of intimacy her repentance required plummeted her to a depth of love. The Pharisee was also a sinner, but he was blinded by pride and strangled by self-righteousness.

God’s mercy does not make sin tolerable; it makes sin forgivable. The proud and the depraved alike must kneel at the same feet for mercy. For those willing, God turns sin’s empty cistern into a deep wellspring overflowing with love.

Do you have something in your life for which you feel God cannot forgive you? Perhaps you cannot forgive yourself. Open your heart to God’s forgiving, redeeming love. He can forgive you—and He will—if you ask Him. His Word declares it.

  12. Betty Marschner says:

    God can not look upon sin so for sure sin is not made tolerable. Too often today we Christians are told loudly and very clear that we are to tolerate sin in our society and call it some other more palatable word. Sin is still sin and when it is idetified as such then His mercy is made all the sweeter!

    • Betty Marschner says:

      OOPS!!! Guess I am still in a tither over Duck Dynasty today!!!
      My fav Christmas dish is cranberry salad. My today’s version is much easier than the days when Mom would grind the fresh cranberries etc mine is probably not quite as tasty but it is made better by less work involved!!!

  13. My favorite dish would be homemade cinnamon rolls-MMMMM. Tried other things for Christmas breakfast but these were alway the winner! Besides it’s Christmas!

  14. Diana Mercer says:

    My favorite dish at Christmas wasn’t a dish at all it was the punch my mother would make. We would have the best time joking with her about the green sherbet and 7-up. Now that she is spending her Christmases with Jesus I make the punch in her honor.

  15. I don’t remember having traditional formal meals. It’s always been whatever…. but my mom and I always made haystacks. Butterscotch, chow mien noodles and peanuts in mounds. She’s been gone for 9 years but every time I make them I think of her and feel a bit closer to her.

  29. My favorite dish would be the big family breakfast that we all participate in, after opening the gifts, I fix a huge breakfast. I cook bacon, sausage, pancakes, eggs , ham and biscuits, etc. We sit down as a family and eat and to me Christmas is about family, spending time with family because you don’t know from day to day how long you have with them. I will take family and Christ any day over gifts !
