Golden Verse 金句

 “But watch yourselves lest your hearts be weighed down with dissipation and drunkenness and cares of this life, and that day come upon you suddenly like a trap. " 
                                      Luke 21:34
"你 們 要 謹 慎 , 恐 怕 因 貪 食 、 醉 酒 , 並 今 生 的 思 慮 累 住 你 們 的 心 , 那 日 子 就 如 同 網 羅 忽 然 臨 到 你 們 "                           路加福音 21:34
Today's Reading: Luke 21:5-38

     What I got from Jesus is: Don't fall into the trap of greediness!
     What I received from Jesus today is a warning of our daily thinking and doing. We have a good example of how the widow offered everything she got in yesterday's passage. Then we have another picture of describing life. The picture of being trapped by greediness, anxieties and suffering. 

     You must have someone asking you a question about what you would do if you have only one day of life. I don't know what you answer is but your answer is not important. Why? Because unless that day really come, you won't really do anything about that. Anyway, it is so easy for us to be trapped by greediness, anxieties and suffering. As Jesus says, it would someday like a net catching you like catching an animal.

     How can we get away from that trap? Who can we get "unstuck" in the midst of troubles? The answer is here in this passage:
 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.

It's the daily Word of the Lord. It's your daily reading of the Bible. It's the daily presence of Jesus to be with you. It's the daily listen and obey that matters the most!  

Dear Lord Jesus,
Lead us to be willing to open the Bible each day and let you speak to us so that we can escape all that is about to happen trapping us and pulling us into the darkness. Lead us into your light, your hope and your holy presence each day.  In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
