Who's the Better Host?
[...] Then turning toward the woman, he said to Simon,
"Do you see this woman? I entered your house; you gave me
no water for my feet, but she has bathed my feet with her tears
and dried them with her hair. You gave me no kiss, but from the
time I came in she has not stopped kissing my feet. You did not
anoint my head with oil, but she has anointed my feet with ointment.
Therefore, I tell you, her sins, which were many, have been forgiven;
hence she has shown great love. But the one to whom little is
forgiven, loves little." Then he said to her, "Your
sins are forgiven."
But those who were at the table with him began to
say among themselves, "Who is this who even forgives sins?"
And he said to the woman, "Your faith has saved
you; go in peace."

The more we recognize our need for forgiveness, the
closer we are to God.
The more we feel self-sufficient, the harder
it is to take time out for God.
