The woman has sinned boldly – her sin is ever before her, whether it is occupational, behavioural, or health related – and she knows that only grace can make her whole. Jesus accepts her because she knows her need and cannot hide behind the mask of national and ethical righteousness. She offers overwhelming, outrageous and generous gift to Jesus.
Do we offer such overwhelming gift to the God Jesus reveals to us in his life, death and resurrection?
Most often our gifts are very stingy.
