60IN60 Day 25 - Thurs May 30

It's Day 25 and we're in Luke 11.

Where God Spoke To Me:
- Verse 1 - For all of us who aren't particularly good at prayer or find prayer difficult, it's encouraging to know that the disciples asked Him to teach them how to pray and He didn't rebuke them for that.

- Verses 49-51 - This is tough to understand, but I take it to say something like, "You all are in an advantaged position - you have all the history of Israel to look back on and learn from.  Yet, rather than learning, you're every bit the hypocrites that your forefathers were.  Therefore the guilt just continues to pour out on you."
- Verse 52 - What is the "key to knowledge"?  He doesn't say here.  One obvious explanation would be that the key is Jesus.  Another possibility, given the Pharisees' habits, was that the key is avoiding hypocrisy.

If you want to read the chapter online, here's a link.

Questions You Have:
- "Why do you think, in verse 4 [of Luke 10], Jesus told the disciples/missionaries to not greet anyone on the road? Was it to keep them on their 'path'?" - It does seem an odd instruction.  Your suggestion is along the lines of what I'm thinking - they had a limited amount of time and He wanted them to get to the cities where they could speak to more people.  It does seem a little rude, though, doesn't it?
