Chocolate Milkshakes

Then Jesus spoke to her: “I forgive your sins.” That set the dinner guests talking behind his back: “Who does he think he is, forgiving sins!” He ignored them and said to the woman, “Your faith has saved you. Go in peace.” - Luke 7:49-50

Jesus handled the intentional unwelcoming offenses from the Pharisee and pressed on the bless the woman. And Jesus has been changing attitudes towards people ever since. We don't know if it helped the Pharisee see the woman differently, but we can hope so.

Watch this bible story get lived out in real life in this 5 minute video about death row lawyer Bryan Stevenson - and, to give some context, every single time that Bryan went to the jail to visit his client, the client asked for a chocolate milkshake, but Bryan was never able to get one into the jail.

Pray that you'd be like Bryan, who looks a lot like Jesus here.
