Suggested props: a bottle of perfume

One day, a Pharisee named Simon invited Jesus to his house for dinner.

As Jesus was eating at the table, suddenly a woman came to him. This woman had a bad reputation in the town. The Bible describes her as someone who lived a sinful life.

This woman started crying at Jesus’ feet. Her tears streamed down and wet his feet, and she wiped the feet with her hair. She had a very expensive and precious alabaster jar of perfume — it was probably her most treasured possession. She poured the perfume on Jesus’ feet. (spray some perfume in the air or at feet so that the kids can smell it)

When Simon saw this happening, he said to himself, “If this man were a prophet, he would know who is touching him and what kind of woman she is.”

As we know, Jesus knows our thoughts even when we don’t speak them out. Jesus decided to tell

Simon a story:

     Two people owed money to a moneylender.
     One owed 500 denarii, while the other owed 50 denarii. 
     (1 denarii = 1 day’s salary)
      None of them could pay their debt.
      The moneylender decided to forgive both their debts.
      Which of these two people will love the moneylender more?

Simon answered, “The one who had the bigger debt forgiven.”

Jesus said, “You have judged correctly.”

Then Jesus turned to the woman and said to Simon:


Did not give any water for Jesus to wash His feet
Wet feet with tears and wiped with hair

Did not give Jesus a kiss
Has not stopped kissing feet

Did not put oil on Jesus’ head
Poured perfume on His feet

Both Simon and the woman had sins — both had debts they could not pay.

But only the woman realised and understood that Jesus had forgiven her many sins. That’s why the woman’s response was so great! She had been forgiven much, so she loved much.

Whereas Simon the Pharisee was probably self-righteous and did not realise he also needed his sins to be forgiven. So as he thought he had not much to be forgiven, he also showed little love to Jesus.

Difference: Simon invited Jesus into his house, but the woman invited Jesus into her heart.

Jesus assured the woman: “Your sins are forgiven. Your faith has saved you. Go in peace.” The woman no longer had to go out as a “sinful” woman, but as one who knew she had been forgiven.


When we realise how much Jesus has done for us, we cannot help but to love Him in return.

That’s the amazing grace of God!

Let’s pray: Thank you Jesus that while we were still sinners, when we couldn’t pay our debts, when we were Your enemies, You loved us and forgave us. Thank you for Your amazing grace in our lives. Amen.



Get kids in smaller groups. Get them to share some of the sins they have done in their lives and what it means to them that Jesus has forgiven them all.

Let us praise and thank God because he is great and so good to us.

I’m trading my sorrows
