Luke 7:47 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.
Being a second generation Christian, this passage hits home. It would be easy for me to get used to many things – my salvation, God’s goodness, and His forgiveness – and not appreciate them as I ought. Because I didn’t experience a life in the world, surrounded by sin, experiencing the painful repercussions that result because of it. However, the Lord saved me FROM those things just as much as He did this lady, or Mary Magdalene, or any other sinner. And for that I ought to be forever grateful. My prayer is that, daily, is be reminded of God’s goodness, the goodness of His forgiveness, and the joy of being part of His people and family.
