Woe Woe Woe Woe

We continue our journey into every word spoken by Jesus in the Gospels to help us all KNOW JESUS MORE NOW.

For the past several days, we did a deeeeep dive into the Beatitudes. 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.
