Luke 12

March 19, 2011

Here’s how the study works: Read the chapter mentioned in the heading several times during the week and share any words, thoughts, verses that stood out to you. Having a week for a chapter creates the opportunity to reread it several times and make additional comments as you feel inclined as well as make comments on other people’s insights.

  1. v.34 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

    Really like the Message:
    It's obvious, isn't it? The place where your treasure is, is the place you will most want to be, and end up being.

    The NLT is good too:
    Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.

  3. v.7 Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.

    With the discovery of DNA this verse can take on a different meaning. All our hairs have our DNA and are in this sense "numbered".

  5. v.37 It will be good for those servants whose master finds them watching when he comes. Truly I tell you, he will dress himself to serve, will have them recline at the table and will come and wait on them.

    How amazing God will serve us! This is not without precedence as we see Jesus washing the disciples’ feet in John 13:3-5. We make clumsy servants but if we don’t try to serve, instead allow God to give us his grace, we are no longer appear clumsy.

    Often we are reluctant receivers of his love and grace.

  7. v.57 "Why don’t you judge for yourselves what is right? …"

    I feel like Jesus is saying have a think about it. Sometimes a bit of common sense goes a long way!
