    Verse 27-28 Jesus (still teaching us not to worrying) give another example for us to consider: GOD’s creation /the flower never worry for it’s necessities, but the man-made king with it’s glory worry for necessities; Jesus answered our problem “O ye of little faith”.
  • Obbie Beal
    verse 27 Jesus continue to teach us (concerning worrying) using a flower; the flower don't worry, it gladly accept GOD given beauty; it live it's life happy, then die; but kings work hard to create beauty, happiness, never coming close to the beauties created by Jehovah /GOD, then kings /we die worrying over ..., ...,.

    verse 25 Jesus address the ‘sin of worrying’ by asking us a question: 25 And which of you ‘with taking thought’ can add to his stature one cubit?

    verse 24, JESUS teaches us (again) to consider /think about How Jehovah /GOD faithfully provides all the 'needs' of birds; then JESUS reminds us how much more important we are to GOD than birds, therefore GOD shall provide our 'needs' also.

  • Obbie Beal
    verse 16-21 JESUS gives an example of the sin of 'Covetousness'... ( this example is still the test we can administer to our self in 2019).
  • Obbie Beal
    verse 13-15 Jesus is requested to resolve a family dispute; (we remember Jesus always keep HIS eyes on redemption /salvation) so Jesus address the man request by making it known to the man JESUS was not the ‘local civil judge’ /the person with authority to handle such civil dispute; plus Jesus seize the moment to identify a deeper evil /sin… JESUS warn us of ‘Covetousness’.
  • Obbie Beal
    verse 11-12 note the 'order' (1) synagogue /church, (2) magistrates /local civil authorities, (3) powers /government; (the same order they took JESUS).
  • Obbie Beal
    verse 11-12 JESUS assure us that the Holly Spirit will give us the words to speak when we are brought before the rulers of law /public officials, therefore do not worry about what to say.
  • Obbie Beal
    Verse 11-12 JESUS prepares our heart
  • Obbie Beal
    verse 10 JESUS teach us the results of 2 groups of sins; the first group of sin clearly there is forgiveness, but the second sin there is no forgiveness. This second group is when we cross the line of no-return (example: satin and all the fallen angels crossed the line of no-return Song of Solomon 2019 satin work 24/7 to convince us to blaspheme thereby join them to be cast into 'the lake of fire') .
  • Obbie Beal
    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.
  • Obbie Beal
    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.
  • Obbie Beal
    verse 5 Jesus warn us to fear HIM that has power to kill and cast that same person into hell.
  • Obbie Beal
    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"
  • Bruce
    1The Leaven is, Sin/5 Fear God/8 Tell Others what Christ has Done for You and How to be Saved by The Blood of The Lamb/10 Speaking Evil about The Spirit is Not Forgiving/18-34 No Need to Stockpile for Years to Come. Read The Bible, Pray, Tell Others what Christ has Done in Your Life. He Will Take Care of Our Needs.I have Not Seen The Righteous Forsaken Nor His Seed Begging for Bread (Psalms 37:25)
  • Mazie S. Blue
    Luke 12 appears to be almost like the 7 Commandments.Jesus is Instructing his disciples. He's speaking to them in parables say they can understand what he's trying to tell them.He's Prophesying of things to come.Some of them are already in force now.He is instructing his Disciples for us to follow too.He want us to be ready for The Rapture. He's kind of instructing us as a parent.
    I Luv Luke 12.

    Reminds me that God cares about each and every one of His creations
  • Kathy
    God is Faithful no matter where you go or what you do. You have been bought with a price. We belong to him!
  • Valarie
    God loves us!! We are important to Him.
  • 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.
