A comment some (most? all?) have made about some (most? all?) of these posts is that they can be difficult to understand. The beginning doesn’t indicate the end. That reading a post a few times is needed to “get it”. My dilemma is each time I write – it all makes perfect sense in my head. Thus, making it easier to read and comprehend is outside my comprehension.
And then this passage today:
Jesus also said to the crowds, “When you see a cloud rising in the west, you immediately say, ‘It is going to rain’; and so it happens. And when you see the south wind blowing, you say, ‘There will be scorching heat’; and it happens. You hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of earth and sky, but why do you not know how to interpret the present time? “And why do you not judge for yourselves what is right? Thus, when you go with your accuser before a magistrate, on the way make an effort to settle the case, or you may be dragged before the judge, and the judge hand you over to the officer, and the officer throw you in prison. I tell you, you will never get out until you have paid the very last penny.” Luke 12:54-59
I read it once straight through and chuckled.
If this was “verbatim” – then the crowds around Jesus might have had some fun “getting it” straight away. Weather forecasts, hypocrites, current affairs, legal action, and a prison sentence!
Yep Lord! Thank you for making it all so clear! 🙂
Have a great Friday!!
