So I tell you this. Her many sins have been forgiven. She has shown that she understands this by her great acts of love. But whoever has been forgiven only a little loves only a little.”Luke 7:47 NIRV
As christians, we can forget the point of seeing our sins and we try to either act like we are perfect or we feel like we could never possibly be forgiven for everything we have done.
Both of those approaches are wrong, purely because when we truly understand that God is loving, we will not only confess our sins freely, we will actually be motivated to love others when we see how our sins hurt people! This will not only help us to want to keep seeing sin, which is really ways that we aren’t being loving, but to also want to be close to God and keep changing.
