+ Tuesday: Luke Chapter 6 +
Contemplation [verses 20-26]
Our Friend came in suffering, living amongst those who suffer to carry them in the midst of suffering to share His glories. He presents a personal blessing to His listeners by saying ‘Blessed are you….’ He describes them as poor and hungry, weeping and despised by people, and persecuted wrongfully by them. Then He begins His ‘woes’ to those who have the contrary qualities to the rich, the fully satisfied, those who laugh now, those who are praised by everyone..
