The Woman Who Worshiped Jesus

I love being a parent.  Psalms 128,  I make my home a haven for my kids.  Romans 12:18, Galatians 5:22-23

36 When one of the Pharisees invited Jesus to have dinner with him, he went to the Pharisee’s house and reclined at the table. 37 A woman in that town who lived a sinful life learned that Jesus was eating at the Pharisee’s house, so she came there with an alabaster jar of perfume. 38 As she stood behind him at his feet weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears. Then she wiped them with her hair, kissed them and poured perfume on them.
39 When the Pharisee who had invited him saw this, he said to himself, “If this man were a prophet, he would know who is touching him and what kind of woman she is—that she is a sinner.”
40 Jesus answered him, “Simon, I have something to tell you.” “Tell me, teacher,” he said.
41 “Two people owed money to a certain moneylender. One owed him five hundred denarii, and the other fifty. 42 Neither of them had the money to pay him back, so he forgave the debts of both. Now which of them will love him more?”
43 Simon replied, “I suppose the one who had the bigger debt forgiven.”
“You have judged correctly,” Jesus said.
44 Then he turned toward the woman and said to Simon, “Do you see this woman? I came into your house. You did not give me any water for my feet, but she wet my feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair. 45 You did not give me a kiss, but this woman, from the time I entered, has not stopped kissing my feet. 46 You did not put oil on my head, but she has poured perfume on my feet. 47 Therefore, I tell you, her many sins have been forgiven—as her great love has shown. But whoever has been forgiven little loves little.”  LUKE 7:36-47

  • How does your family celebrate milestones? (
  • Has Parkway Church been a part of any of your celebrations?
  • The humbling story we read today from Luke shows us the heart of forgiveness.
  • Share with each other, what a relationship with Jesus has done in your life.  In other words, share your testimony.  Answer these questions.  Who were you before Jesus?  How did you believe in Jesus?  What difference does it make in your life to know Jesus now?

Make a family movie.  After everyone has had a chance to share their Jesus story, record it as a home movie.  You can do it as an interview.  You can tell it as one giant story about your family.  You could just do a family mashup and add your favorite song.  Once you have finished, share it with everyone who was in the movie and others as you find opportunity.  Parkway Church would love to see your family movies.  Share them with
