As I sit here to reflect, I think who would I be in this passage. Who I would like to be and who I most likely would be are probably not the same. Truthfully I see a number of parallels between the opportunities afforded Simon and my own life. I can also see myself as one of the other guests and can think about what thoughts they must of had about the situation. Then there’s the woman who despite all the distractions of that day and her past, chose her path with a bold determination that I so often lack. And lastly Jesus, who could reason beyond the current cultural rules of the day and explained things in a way that even today is relevant. I can certainly relate to having debt....lol.
Just something I will be thinking about today, thank you Agtalk for giving me somewhere to post my thoughts.
