The Shadows of Distraction!

Soul Snack 1/10 ... The Shadows of Distraction!
Wandering in distraction while seeking fulfillment is such a common manner of life.
The internet chat room, the ubiquitous dating sites and the personal columns in papers all stamped with the footprints of seekers.
So many are distracted from the things of eternity while pursuing the things of the present.
Shortly before Jesus' death He was approached by such a woman. She had led a life so unhelpful to herself and so ignorant of Jesus. Yet in one simple action she corrects all. With tears flowing unhindered she anoints Jesus with all she has.
Instead of seeking Jesus to take from Him, she has sought Jesus to give to Him.
No longer would she wander amongst the shadows of distraction (which had marked her life so far) for now she had entered the brightness of fulfillment.
This sinful woman had given herself to Jesus and in return received the acceptance of heaven.
"Therefore, I tell you, her many sins have been forgiven—for she loved much. But he who has been forgiven little loves little." Lk 7:47
