Good morning! I'm so glad you've taken the time to sit back with a cup of hot tea or maybe some hot chocolate on this cool morning! Or maybe it's warm where you live and you prefer something cool to drink. It's so nice to have a few minutes of time to savor God's word.
Today's reading is Luke 12:1-12. Actually this passage has a few lessons Jesus is teaching here. In the first few verses Jesus is warning the disciples to beware of the leaven of the Pharisees --don't get caught up in false teachings.
Also, Jesus tells us in verses 4 and 5, don't be afraid of those who can kill us. We should fear and respect he who has the power to take our lives and also cast us into hell. What can man do other than hurt us or take our life? It's a frightening thought, but losing my soul is a worse thought.
But God loves us and does not want anything bad for us. He knows even the number of hairs we have on our heads! As much as we love our children I don't think any of us know exactly how many hairs are on their heads. He loved us enough to send his Son to die for us so that we might live. That's a truly awesome love.
