Sinned Much, Forgiven Much...Loves Much
Passage: Luke 7:36–7:50
- Like the man owing fifty denarii, those who take their spiritual condition for granted, and are not aware of having been forgiven of numerous gross sins, should not despise those who have been redeemed from a more wretched state.
- Like the debtor owing five hundred denarii, those who recognize they have much for which to be thankful will naturally respond in generous expressions of love for Jesus.
- Like the moneylender, God forgives both categories of sinners and allows them to begin again with a clean slate.
