It's Day 6 and we're in Luke 6.
Where God Spoke To Me:
- Verses 3-5 - This really hit me hard. How often do I say, "What that really means is. . ." and explain away a passage by making it easily fit within my theology? I need to dwell with the verses and receive them on their own terms, even if that creates some struggle.
- Verses 1-2 - This was one of the rules the Pharisees had come up with: doing something as simple as this was classified by them as "work" and therefore banned on the Sabbath.
- Verses 3-5 - Jesus reminds them that others did things that would have been "immoral" by their made-up rules.
- Verses 20-26 - This speaks to who is more likely to have insight into God and who is less likely.
- Verses 29-30 - This doesn't mean that if we're beat up we can't defend ourselves. The slapping has more to do with slapping as an insult.
