Daily Word Of God

Luke 12:54-59

Jesus said to the crowds, ‘When you see a cloud looming up in the west you say at once that rain is coming, and so it does. And when the wind is from the south you say it’s going to be hot, and it is.  Hypocrites! You know how to interpret the face of the earth and the sky. How is it you do not know how to interpret these times?

‘Why not judge for yourselves what is upright? For example: when you are going to court with your opponent, try to settle with him on the way, or he may drag you before the judge and the judge hand you over to the bailliff and the bailliff have you thrown into prison. I tell you, you will not get out till you have paid the very last penny.’

Today's Pointers on God's Word

As you read the passage what words, phases or meanings caught your attention?

  • Often, it is most difficult to see and admit the many faults that we have; the good that we have failed to do and the sins that we have committed.


  • This is because we do not want to face the ugliness within us which reveals the weaknesses of our faith and relationship we have with the Lord.


  • However, once we are able to face this reality of ourselves, we will be more open to deepening our love for Our Lord and live in His ways.
