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.

    V. 35 - "..... for He is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil." That's a hard one, even with His spirit dwelling in us, but He WILL giveth more Grace, if we sincerely pray for HIS love for these souls, but - it is hard. With God NOTHING is impossible. I've got a situation with someone right now, and it is hard. But God is able and faithful.

    Yes. it is hard to Love my enemies. But in so doing It will heap coals of fire on their head. I can do all things through Christ who strenghtens me : My heavenly Father didn't call me into His Grace to leave me on my own to do this all by myself : He sent Holy Spirit within me to help me to do what He says to do : When I make the choice to do what He says and ask for His help to do it : Then He is there to help me !!

    I had a big fight with my best friend and the Lord used Matthew 5:44 to speak to me about praying for him. I felt used and it really showed me his need, and mine, to pray for him. I hope one day we will no longer be enemies, but that he can be restored to my life. It's been 3 and half years and I have gotten right with the Lord. Just hoping the Lord will save him.
