A Story of Prejudice by Crain Blanchard


This story is from the bible. You can read it in Luke 7:36-50. Jesus was invited to lunch at a pharisee’s home, named Simon. Jesus arrived and was seated. There was a woman of the street, who found out that He would be there. She bought with her a bottle of ointment to anoint Him. She snuck into the house, without anyone noticing. As she approached Jesus, she began to cry. Then she began to wash His feet with her tears and wipe them dry with her hair. Then she anointed Jesus’ feet. Then Simon and his friends began to say among themselves, if He is a prophet, He would know who is touching him. Jesus turned to Simon and said, when I arrived, you didn’t greet me with a kiss. Nor did you provide water to wash my feet. This woman whose sins are many, has wash my feet with her tears and dried them with her hair. She has anointed my head with oil. Jesus said, 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. And he said to the woman, thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace. People perceived that because they are successful, they are better or more important than others. Jesus judges us by our heart. All the things of this world mean nothing. Prejudice runs deep in this world and is the opposite of the work God is doing in us. If you want to see clearly, you must look with God’s eyes. Then you will see the misery in this world and know that God will use you to help. To get God’s eyes, turn to Him and ask for forgiveness and follow after God.
