Jesus Anointed By A Sinful Woman

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,[a] 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.”

48 Then Jesus said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.”

49 The other guests began to say among themselves, “Who is this who even forgives sins?”

50 Jesus said to the woman, “Your faith has saved you; go in peace.”

A Prayer For My Readers


Heavenly Father,

I humbly come to You this day, this hour, this very moment asking Your forgiveness of any sins that I may have committed. Lord, make me worthy to pray this prayer for my readers. You are an awesome and loving God, who makes all things – good, bad, and ugly – work together for good to us that love You and have been called according to Your purpose.  Give us ears to hear Your promptings and the will to obey.

Lord, some of my brothers and sisters are burdened down by the troubles of this world. Help me to do my part to strengthen them. May this site be the spark that ignites the fire that You have placed on the inside of them. Give me caring words that encourage, inspire, and comfort everyone who visits this site. May my words, actions, and deeds always be a reflection of You. Help me to faithfully pray for my readers each and every day. That they may come into right relationship with You, themselves, and all others.

In the matchless Name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!
