Summary: Forgive everyone no matter what they do to you.
May the peace of the Lord be with you.
*DAY 2 OF LENT*
Our reflection today is on the 2nd Kingdom Culture from the parable below:
*THE TWO DEBTORS*
Luke 7:41-48 King James Version (KJV)
41 There was a certain creditor which had two debtors: the one owed five hundred pence, and the other fifty.
42 And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave them both. Tell me therefore, which of them will love him most?
43 Simon answered and said, I suppose that he, to whom he forgave most. And he said unto him, Thou hast rightly judged.
44 And he turned to the woman, and said unto Simon, Seest thou this woman? I entered into thine house, thou gavest me no water for my feet: but she hath washed my feet with tears, and wiped them with the hairs of her head.
45 Thou gavest me no kiss: but this woman since the time I came in hath not ceased to kiss my feet.
46 My head with oil thou didst not anoint: but this woman hath anointed my feet with ointment.
47 Wherefore I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little.
48 And he said unto her, Thy sins are forgiven
*The culture of forgiving no matter the magnitude of offence*.
The more you forgive the more love you receive from Jesus and man and are able to enjoy it. To forgive is to give love and when you give you receive.
Prayer: Daddy please help me to practice this culture so it becomes a part of me forever. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
