An observation: Jesus painted countercultural pictures by loving the accused. There was the woman at the well, the woman caught in adultery, etc.
There was the woman who publicly fell at his feet. She took perfume, which cost a year’s salary, and poured it over Jesus’ feet- then wiped his feet clean with hair and tears. Judas, who was in charge of the finances, had an issue with all this, which stirred the ire of Jesus.
I wonder if loving the accused would be a better course of action. Oh what remarkable pictures we could paint with that story…
