UNIFYING LESSON PRINCIPLE: People often respond to forgiveness with loving acts. What can we do to show gratitude to those who forgive us? In the book of Luke, the sinful woman showed her gratitude to Jesus by washing His feet with her tears and anointing Him with expensive oil.
CONCLUDING REFLECTION: The woman displayed an affection fueled by faith and thankfulness. Jesus accepts her expression of faith and thankfulness and forgives her of her sin. Honesty about sin is important, but so is a clear message that God has graciously provided a solution to sin for the one who humbly approaches Him.
PRAYER: Heavenly Father, we give you thanks for every way of life being as well with us as it is. We are mindful each day of your kindness and tender loving mercy. Help us to respond in like manner to all whom we meet. Keep ever before us that it is your grace and forgiveness that have brought us safe thus far. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen
