Luke 12:54-59

Jesus could have been speaking directly to us when he said, “You hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of the earth and sky; but why do you not know how to interpret the present time?” Are we aware of the presence or the absence of God in our midst? When we observe injustice in the business arena, we are called upon to speak out. When we see despair in the lives of others, we are challenged to provide some measure of comfort. When we encounter those weak in their faith, we must feel compelled to share the gospel message to some degree.  Are we tuned in to the presence or absence of God and what are we doing about it?
