Discussion for Luke 10

  • Julius Mutua
    Verse 19 gives me the confidence to soldier on. Glory to God. I have the POWER!
  • ONWODI SUNDAY CHIEDU
    Sir, what are the likely costs and benefits for showing love to our neighbours Luke 10:25 to 37 ?
  • A disciple
    In all the various kinds of people following Jesus, look at the oneness of the word toward each kind! To the Seventy, to the Lawyer, to Martha; all speak to us about being sent into difficult situations and conditions, for the sake of doing God's work: whether we are sent out; or if we have one in front of us who needs mercy; or we need to lay aside all our "other" worries, and sit down and hear!
  • Sandra
    Mary has that attitude of listening whereas Martha worried and Mary chose the good to do. I like the fact worrying does solve the problem which means the word of god has the answer when we totally trust him.
  • Charles
    Jesus. Jesus. and more Jesus
