    "The gifts of God are without repentance."
  • Chitsanzo H Mokiwa for verse 5
    It's all about recognizing your shortfall and asking for a specific direct help!!!!
  • John Hodge
    This chapter is reminding man, to get ready because His coming is very near. God also displaying His, Unconditional-Love to mankind, still asking that old question 'Adam where art thou? Throughout the ages He's asking that same question in Luke,asking where are the rest 90 in giving 'Thanks' to God and His Son for His Loving-kindness and tender-mercy...in spite of our un-thankfulness to Him. In the days of Lot and Noah man god is still materialistic things until now! God sill loves us and giving us time to repent and be prepared for His soon returns to this earth.

    Luke is a very a interesting chapter and its a eye opening verse and I teaches you that went god blesses you must give thanks to him and serve him that when you are in need again he can help you and when you don 't thank him. HE WILL forgive you and he will help you again because he forgives you 70 7

    Heres what I got out of this chapter. People better get right with God now! God isn 't going to wait for us to get ready.. God can do whatever he wants, He 's God and he created us for him!!
  • Kukula Na Kulipa Ronald for verse 32
    This verse once again shows the weakness of women after that of Eve that they are more materialistic than spiritual.It asks us all to be mindful of the heavenly possession than the earthly ones.
