A Little Or A Lot
APRIL 7, 2022
Daily Reading – Joshua 10-11 / Luke 7:36-50
WHAT GOD HAS SAID:
Luke 7:47 Wherefore I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little.
WHAT I HAVE SEEN:
How much do we love God? According to today’s passage in Luke, it may depend on how much we think we were forgiven. If we think we are not that bad and that God only had to forgive just a little bit of sin to save us, we may only love God a little.
However, if we ever get the true picture of the sinfulness of our soul, when God through the precious blood of His Son, washed away our sins, we will love Him a lot. We must remember, at our best we are as filthy rags before the perfect righteousness of a Holy God.
Imagine a white shirt. Now spill gravy on just one spot. What shows up, the clean shirt or the spot? It is the filthiness of the spot that gets the attention. Is the shirt now clean or dirty? It takes very little sin for us to be totally filthy.
WHAT WILL YOU DO:
How much do you love God now?
