Luke 12

 

Jesus said to beware of hypocrites.

Someday, everything will be laid bare.

Don’t fear men.

Fear God: He can cast you to hell!

God remembers even little sparrows.

He knows you, even the number of your hairs.

Everyone who confesses Jesus before men, he will confess before the angels of God.

But he who denies Jesus will be denied before the angels of God.

He who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him.

When things get rough, don’t worry: the Spirit will give you the right words.

Be on your guard against greed; life isn’t about possessions.

Accumulating possessions is fruitless if you’re not rich toward God.

Don’t worry about having enough food or clothes.

That’s not what it’s all about.

God feeds the ravens; he’ll feed you.

God makes beautiful lilies; he’ll clothe you.

Worrying doesn’t even give you extra time—

So it doesn’t pay to worry about anything.

Have faith!

Don’t worry like the world does.

God knows your needs.

Seek God; He’ll take care of the rest.

Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has chosen gladly to give you the kingdom.

Scale down your lifestyle and give to charity.

Build your treasure in heaven.

Up there, it won’t deteriorate or get stolen.

Where your treasure is, that’s where your heart is.

Be ready for Jesus’ second coming.

Don’t be caught off-guard.

You’ll be blessed if you are found diligent while Jesus is away.

If you are, you’ll be put in charge of many things.

Don’t behave like He’s not returning soon, mistreating people, getting drunk.

If you do, Jesus’ return will take you by surprise,

And He will assign you a place with the unbelievers.

He who knows better and sins anyway will be severely punished.

He who sins in ignorance will receive a lighter punishment.

From everyone who has been given much, much will be required.

Jesus came to instigate the End!

He didn’t come to bring peace, but division—even within families.

You predict the weather; why can’t you analyze the day we live in?

“And why do you not even on your own initiative judge what is right?

If you’re headed to the judge, stop part-way and settle with your opponent.

If you don’t, he might drag you into court and put you away.
