Woe Woe Woe Woe

GUWG-Cross-CloudWe continue our 40-day journey deeeeep into the ♥ of Jesus.

We’re sitting at Jesus’ feet, listening to the greatest sermon ever preached: the Sermon on the Mount.

For the past several days, we’ve been taking a deeeeep dive into the Beatitudes and what it reeeeeally means to be “blessed.”

Just in case we missed the point somehow, Jesus concluded with a series of woe-full warnings in direct opposition to the world.

The world says: Get rich.

Jesus says:

Woe to you who are rich, for you have already received your comfort. (Luke 6:24)

The world says: Eat well.

Jesus says:

Woe to you who are well fed now, for you will go hungry. (Luke 6:25a)

The world says: Be happy.

Jesus says:

Woe to you who laugh now, for you will mourn and weep. (Luke 6:25b)

The world says: Be popular.

Jesus says:

Woe to you when everyone speaks well of you, for that is how their fathers treated the false prophets. (Luke 6:26) 

Listen to Jesus, not the world.
