Luke 7 – The self-righteous still judge / One who was forgiven

In Luke 7:36-39, 48-50 Jesus has dinner with a self-righteous pharisee. The pharisee’s self-righteousness shows in his judgmental attitude toward one of the by-standers. She is a sinner. She showers affection on Jesus. Why? From Luke 7:48 we learn of her earlier forgiveness. Her actions display her response to that forgiveness.

So here we see that –

The self-righteous still judge
One who was forgiven

Some questions we might ask ourselves:

  • Do I ignore or even deny others forgiveness?
  • Do I criticize those who forgive?
  • Do I forgive?

About Frank

I am a Bible teacher with a passion for men's ministry. I prefer teaching through dialog. I believe any biblical discussion should reflect the context not only of the passage but also historical, geographical, and cultural backgrounds. I prefer interaction, as opposed to lectures. Along with incarnational (in person) teaching, I also post material to my web site blog, Edify Men (www.edify.men).
