Luke 7:36-47

It wasn’t uncommon for the Lord Jesus to be seen eating and drinking with people. Often these people were the undesirables of society. On occasion (of which this was one) Jesus was invited or sought by a Pharisee to dine together.

Simon, likely a Pharisee of note in his town and his day invited Jesus over for a meal. Jesus was Simon’s guest. Yet, Simon’s behaviour toward Jesus signalled a certain attitude toward Him. Often it’s our behaviour towards others that is most telling about our own values and perceptions about ourselves.
