Today we read a much quoted chapter of Luke and one chapter of Joshua, enjoy!
Luke 12, Jesus wass teaching: “Beware of the yeast of the Pharisees,” “even very hairs of your head are all numbered,” “His eyes are on the sparrow,” “acknowledge me before men” and “anyone who blasphemes the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven.” “Do not worry, the Holy Spirit will give you the words to say when you are persecuted for my sake”. Jesus claimed he is not the arbiter in worldly disputes and strongly urged people not to hoard riches here on earth. Again, do not Worry, look at the lilies, (my interpretation: Smell the roses and enjoy God’s creation). Be the faithful and watchful servant, not the evil and drunken one. Finally, Christ will bring division, even among family members, so discern the times and make peace.
