John Bradshaw - She Kissed His Feet
It was customary in Jesus day, in Jesus culture, to wash the feet of honored guests. Simon the pharisee failed to provide that courtesy when Jesus visited his home, but a woman who invited herself to Simon's home took it upon herself to wash Jesus feet with her tears. Luke 7:38 says, “She stood at His feet behind Him weeping; and she began to wash His feet with her tears, and wiped them with the hair of her head; and she kissed His feet and anointed them with the fragrant oil.”
She fell at Jesus feet, considered to be very much a less honorable part of the body in Jesus day, and showed him great honor. Jesus explained that she loved much because she'd been forgiven much. Forgiveness is a seriously big deal. Knowing God has forgiven your sins should impact you. Remember to always be grateful for grace. I'm John Bradshaw for It Is Written.
