“A creditor had two debtors. One owed five hundred denarii and the other fifty. Since they could not pay it back, he graciously forgave them both. So, which of them will love him more?”
Luke 7 verses 41&42
Forgiveness is available for everyone it doesn’t matter what you have done wrong or how bad you think you are. Who is going to love the Lord more or serve him with more zeal? The murderer who has sinned his entire life or the Christian who has only told a few lies. I recently shared a verse from 1 Timothy where Paul states he is the worst sinner of them all and said how it always has resonated with me. I know I am not perfect and that I have sinned, but I also know that there are people who have been through worse things than me and have done worse things. Maybe that is why I don’t attend church like I should even though I have always believed in my risen savior. I am that debtor that only owed fifty, so I don’t love the lord as much as others that have had a harder road. Wow that is hard to admit but that is how that verse spoke to me today.
