    verse 8-9, a large amount of people is listing to JESUS and HE explained to them the blessing of acknowledging HIM as the SAVIOR of the world; plus JESUS explained the results for denying HIM.

    verse 6-7 Jesus reminds us AGAIN of HIS knowledge of knowing all things (see the sparrow /birds above) especially how well HE knows us individually, therefore HE repeat to us again fear not; fear (especially self inflected fear) will rob /steal from us in one way or another, especially when it convince us refuse JESUS as our SAVIOR which result in spending eternity in hell.

    verse 2-3 Jesus teach us how records are kept on us individually; our personals actions or no-action (hands, tongues, heart/ thoughts,) is entered in a super .... THAT belonging to Jehovah / God; (though not mention here, GOD also has a plan called FORGIVENESS and when we exercise our rights through JESUS our 'recorded sins' are forgiven. Thank GOD for Jesus. WOW! WOW! WOW!
  • Obbie Beal
    verse 1 warns us of the danger of hypocrisy; here we see it taught /lived by those holding a leadership role; in this example above hypocrisy is small like 1-grain of sand, but very powerful; it is easily believed; it quickly spread faster then wild fire and just as destructive, especially when conceived by the heart / a by-stander.

    Luke 12:2 is awfully similar to the Beatles' 2nd verse in the song, "All you need is love"
