It's Day 30 and we're in Luke 16.
Where God Spoke To Me:
- Nothing really jumped out to me today.
- Verses 1-9 - This is an unusual story. The point I take from it is this: use what you control to accomplish your goal. The manager wanted to have someone to help him after he was fired and so he used the resources still under his control to accomplish that. In our lives, we need to figure out what our life's goal is (exalt Christ? make my life easier?) and then use the resources I have to accomplish that.
- Verse 16 - "forcing his way" - Probably simply an expression of the zealous interest that many were showing in Christ's teaching.
- Verse 18 - There are other passages that give a more nuanced understanding of Jesus' stand on divorce. This is merely a statement of the general principle.
