The Fear Factor

One evening a Pharisee named Simon invited Jesus to his home for dinner. Word spread throughout town and soon an “immoral woman” showed up at the meal knelt behind Jesus at his feet. That’s not all she did. She proceeded to kiss Jesus’ feet, wash them with her tears, wipe them with her hair and put expensive perfume on them. It was a stunning moment. Most stunning of all was the reaction of Simon. The Bible says he thought to himself, “If this man were a prophet, he would know what kind of woman is touching him. She’s a sinner!” Because Jesus knows the heart of every person, he lovingly rebuked Simon for judging the woman and for not extending grace to her and hospitality to him. This story teaches us some really important lessons about loving our neighbors – about being gracious and hospitable to people wherever they are in their journey.
