It's Day 6 and we're in Luke 6.
Where God Spoke To Me:
- Verse 11 - It's amazing how focused we can become on our theology and miss the obvious move of God that's right in front of our face.
- Verse 2 - It didn't violate the Mosaic Law; it violated their rules derived from the Mosaic Law.
- Verses 21-22 - I think the point is not that we are to be miserable, but that need to have a hunger and desire for things that are beyond this world.
- Verses 24-26 - We need to make sure we aren't content with the petty things that this world can offer us.

Your Questions and Comments:
- "Was the concept of true repentance understood at that time? Weren’t they used to sinning, making sacrifices, & repeating the process? The idea of repentance & changing ones behaviors & motives seems like it would have been very foreign to them all." - Certainly their understanding would have been limited by living before the cross. The Temple sacrifice system included the danger of thinking that "repentance" just required you to go through the motions of making the right sacrifices. They did, however, have the repeated calls from God throughout the Old Testament to sincerely repent from their hearts and change their actions, but at this time they clearly were not heeding those calls. So they did have some understanding about repentance (and were not even living that out), but certainly not as much as we have after the cross of Christ.
