People's Bible Notes for Luke 6:26

Lu 6:26 When all men shall speak well of you! Those who seek to be universally popular. Whoever does his duty will meet those who oppose him. Christ was reviled and slandered. These four woes are addressed to four classes: (1) Those who worship wealth; (2) those satisfied with their present life; (3) those who live for present enjoyment; (4) those whose aim is human praise and adulation.

Tim George's comment on 2014-10-22 19:44:48:

Woe to you when all men speak well of you. Jesus wanted His disciples to know the cost of following Him, and that the false Teachers would be popular. Those that live godly will suffer persecution.

 

Ronald L. Collins's comment on 2013-08-04 00:53:16:

Jesus said I come to bring a sword not peace. This talking about bad men saying good things about bad men. But the application to this verse is professed Christians living there lives like there worrying about losing a vote. instead of standing for bible truth and telling there friends what they need to here the real truth that can save there souls they take the beaten path. When Jesus started his public ministry he lasted three years and they beat him beyond reconistion. It's going to cost you when you take a real stand for the Lord. they delievered him up for envy.
