WHAT THE WOMAN DID DO… (verse 44)

A. First Note: Jesus permitted the woman to touch Him

1. She touched Jesus, being one of the untouchables

2. She touched Jesus personally

3. Jesus’ love for the woman was greater than her sins

B. The woman did the most

1. She entered into Simon’s house uninvited

2. She washed Jesus’ feet with her tears

3. She dried Jesus’ feet with her hair

C. What about me? Do I give Jesus the most?

1. What does the giving of my gifts and talents look like?

2. What does the giving of my tithes look like?

3. What does my giving in my ministry look like?

4. What does my giving to those I do not like look like?

5. Why do I do What I do?

D. Think about this: We had a debt that we could not pay. The payment of that debt was death (Romans 6:23) Jesus freely forgave us of that debt. Therefore, my love for Jesus is displayed in my giving to Jesus.
