“Therefore I tell you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven—for she loved much. But he who is forgiven little, loves little.” – Luke 7:47
He who has been forgiven much, love much. I used to think that this is applicable for those who have really gone through much and away from God, and when they repent, they will really appreciated and learn how to love loads. This is in context with the parable that Jesus illustrated before this verse – the two debtors, one owing 500 denarii and the other 50, where He said the former will love more.
But as i was reflecting on it again that day, when it says “he who is forgiven little” – i realized that it could be that the person realize how much he has been forgiven! But if he does not know, he will not be able to love much! Put it another way, i think it is important that we appreciate and understand to the fullest the forgiveness that has been extended to us.
BSP Module – the 4 Gospels.
For the BSP module this round, i am studying the 4 Gospels, focusing on Luke and John. Think it is going to be yet another brilliant journey in learning and knowing the truth in the Bible! 🙂 🙂
For this particular module, i too hope that at the end of it, i would be able to grasp the significance of the cross more – the price, the significance, the process, the cross. I used to always wonder why i cannot comprehend what Jesus has done on the cross so much. I mean i know it in my head, but i guess i haven’t really understood it entirely with my heart (like you know, there are people that can just tear each time during the holy communion) i’m not trying to say that we need to cry, but i think i have not grasp it totally with my heart and soul. Yea. Jesus i want to know you more! 😀
