The Teachings of Jesus --  Parable of the Debtors

September 8, 2019

 

   Text:  Luke 7:36-50

 

In meeting others…

What do you see first?  

      What is there to see?

 

What did Simon see?

  An Opportunity

  A Questionable Prophet

  A Disreputable Sinner

 

What did the Woman see?

  An Opportunity
  A Prophet of God

  Her Salvation

 

What did Jesus see?

  An Opportunity

  A Self-Righteous Sinner

  A Repentant Sinner

 

The Parable:
   A money lender had two debtors:

       One owed about two months wages, the other
          owed about twenty months of wages.
       Both had their debt forgiven

       Which of them will love him more?

 

What did Jesus see in them?

     Simon                           The Woman

Self-assured                      Brokenness
     Pride                                Humility
   Entitled                                 Love
Confidence                             Faith

 

What does Jesus see in us?
 

  Are we indifferent and unmoved by
                   His presence?

  Have we begun to take Him for granted?

  Have we grown content with our level
            of personal spirituality?

 

                        OR

 

  Is our brokenness and repentance
                 readily apparent?

  Does our love for Him appear as a
              spectacle to others?

  Is our love evident in personal acts

              of grateful sacrifice?
