People's Bible Notes for Luke 6:24

Lu 6:24 Woe unto you that are rich! Matthew omits these woes. Woe to all whose heart is set upon their riches and who take their delight and consolation in them. The woe rests upon all who are engaged in the greedy chase after wealth, or make it their great good. See Mr 10:24 1Ti 6:9,10,17.

Discussion for Luke 6

  • Irene to Nick on Luke 6
    the gist of Luke 6 is - "....... that the som of man is Lord also of the Sabbath." Mk. 2:27 - ".....the Sabbath was made for man and not man for the Sabbath." This is speaking of the law of the O.T. and it being fulfilled in Jesus. We obey the law of the old when we obey Jesus commandments.

    Gloria its been said this way "It's not that I cannot afford to give, but I can't afford not to give" If I give God promises to rebuke the devourler for us. Be faithful so God can prove Himself.
  • I'm struggling to give unto God, i believe that if i can give tithe I will be blessed, but every time I receive my salary it become difficult for me to give tithe, please pray for me because i believe i deserve blessing and also believe giving opens doors.
