Luke 6

Read Luke 6 – Jesus was revolutionary.   As you read chapter 6, consider all the ways Jesus put people over “religion”.  

Jesus defended the hunger of his disciples over the Sabbath laws,  pointing out that even King David ate the consecrated bread (:1-:5). 

Jesus simplified the Sabbath healing of a man’s hand by asking which was lawful to do on the Sabbath: to do good or to do evil, to save a life or to destroy it(:9)?  Legalism does not honor the intent of the Sabbath.   It does not honor God.

Jesus chose the twelve disciples to be Apostles after praying all night. Did you ever notice the duplicate names?   There are two Simons, two James and two Judas, but Jesus personalized each one.  

Jesus shares words that lift up the downtrodden and humble the affluent in verses :17-:49.  “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brothers eyes and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?” 6:41.

Beloved,  you do you well, with love, reverence and humility leading the way.   You do you to the glory and honor of Jesus, and watch what He will do with your surrendered life.💜
