The Sinful Woman & the Sinful Man
Passage: Luke 7:36–7:52
- What is Jesus like? What kind of person is he? How did he love both Simon and the sinful woman in the story?
- How are you different from Jesus? Do you ever judge people (like Simon judged the woman)? Who are you most likely to judge- people like the woman (i.e. immoral people) or people like Simon (i.e. self-righteous/moral people)?
- Read Psalm 103:8-13 together. Do you see yourself as a big sinner or as a little sinner? How has God in Christ treated YOU in YOUR sin?
- Discuss the phrase: “He who is forgiven little loves little’ (Luke 7:47). Who are you struggling to love? Why is it hard to love that person? What’s the key to becoming more loving towards them?
