Discussion for Luke 12

  • Stephen B
    5 And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit? This has nothing to do with your 'height'. This means by thinking you can not add one second to the years of your life.

    If we closely observe the ravens or birds we see that they are fed and are clothed with beautiful feathers. If Jehovah God takes care of these creatures, how much more so will he take care of us?
  • Geraldine Bulos
    Why worry? Remember there is GOD our GOD the Omnipotent, Omnipresence, Omniscient. Mighty of all. The LORD of all. Hallelujah!
  • BSP
    Jehovah God cares for the birds by giving them what is needed to feed them and make sure they are clothed. If God cares for the birds, we can have confidence that he will care for our needs.
  • BSP
    Verse 4~ The worst thing another human can do to us is to put us to death. Our everlasting life lies in the hands of Jehovah God and it is to him that we should be faithful and loyal to in everything.
  • A disciple
    "..hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time? Yea, and why even of yourselves judge ye not what is right?" Our life in this present evil world is a probationary period until the Day of Reckoning and Eternal Judgment. Good discernment orders its life with a view toward that day in hope of finding mercy, acceptance and salvation.
