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.

Discussion for Luke 6

  • Timothyschnell
    my children do not forsake the bible nor the writters of it.It is and always will stand against any other translation.Do not contest the other translations for they who write any other have to answer to God.God is not the author of confusion.It is Holy.Now be Holy.Read it.It is God talking to you.Amen
  • A disciple
    "But he knew their thoughts, and said to the man which had the withered hand, Rise up, and stand forth in the midst..." Most of us are passive and try everything to avoid confrontation. This is praise worthy when we are assaulted without cause, as it gives us a chance to die to self and grow like Jesus. But the Lord Himself is often assertive and proactive to confront evil thoughts and hypocrisy.
  • A disciple
    "And Jesus answering them said, Have ye not read so much as this,.." He that searches the hearts and the innermost thoughts and intents knows how He made us; and He debates with those who have His Word but don't understand it. God sent His Prophets, and Messengers to bring men His Word, with the expectation of understanding and obedience. How then does someone read or hear and not understand?

    LUKE 6:46 AND WHY CALL YOU ME LORD LORD AND DO NOT THE THINGS WHICH I SAY --- 1 TIMOTHY 6:15 which in HIS times HE shall show who is the blessed and only potentate the KING OF KINGS and LORD OF LORDS --- PHILIPPIANS 2:21 FOR ALL SEEK THEIR OWN NOT THE THINGS WHICH ARE JESUS CHRISTS
  • Servant of God
    Jesus lays down the law, doing no miracles but telling the Truth (which is quite miraculous these days). This to me is the way, not just faith but the law implied in his sermon, which on it's face is obvious but the enactment being the rarest event since Moses and the nine plagues. Sinners will love sinners, but workers in the field will love those who despitefully use them. Jesus earned bliss
  • Breeze
    The Lord used verse 26 to convince me to pray for someone who "despitefully use[d]" me. Praying for enemies is tough especially those you once considered friends but I hope to see the Lord turn that soul around.
