Humility and division.

 

Jesus the cause of division.

 

Luke 12.

Verses 49 to 54.

 

I came to set the earth on fire, and how i wish it was already kindled! I have a baptism to receive, and how distressed i am until it is over!  Do you suppose i came to bring peace to the world. No, not peace, but division.  From now on a family will be divided, three against two and two against three.  Fathers will be against there sons and sons against there fathers; mothers against there daughters,daughters against there mothers, and in laws against one another.

 

Jesus said all of this because he knew that some would follow him and others would not.  He knew that because of that they would not see eye to eye on things which would seperate them.

Humility.

 

 

Luke 14

 

Verses 10 to 12.

 

When you are invitted some where  go sit in the lowest place so that your host will come to you and say, ‘Come up to a better place’ This will bring you honour in the presence of other guests. For every one who makes himself great will be humbled and every one who humbles himself will be made great.
