Day 7: Luke

Read Luke 7.

Spotlighted Scripture:  Read Luke 7:36-50.

As you read today's scripture, take a seat at the dinner table of Simon, the Pharisee.  Soak in the events that occurred during this "unusual" dinner party. 
  • What was it like when the "woman who lived a sinful life" entered the room? 
  • How long did she stand behind Jesus before she fell at His feet?
  • Did Simon even acknowledge her presence or did he continue to talk to Jesus as if no one had entered the room?
  • As she cried, were they silent tears or heaving sobs?
  • Imagine what the room might have smelled like once she poured the perfume on Jesus' feet?
Have you ever come to Jesus like the "sinful woman" did?  God knows our heart so there is no need to hide behind pretenses- just come as you are- broken, sinful but thankful.
