Reading along with us in Luke? Here’s today’s reading:

Luke 21 (ESV)

Jesus looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the offering box, and he saw a poor widow put in two small copper coins. And he said, “Truly, I tell you, this poor widow has put in more than all of them. For they all contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty put in all she had to live on.”

And while some were speaking of the temple, how it was adorned with noble stones and offerings, he said, “As for these things that you see, the days will come when there will not be left here one stone upon another that will not be thrown down.” And they asked him, “Teacher, when will these things be, and what will be the sign when these things are about to take place?” And he said, “See that you are not led astray. For many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am he!’ and, ‘The time is at hand!’ Do not go after them. And when you hear of wars and tumults, do not be terrified, for these things must first take place, but the end will not be at once.”....Continue Reading

  1. 13This will be your opportunity to bear witness. 14Settle it therefore in your minds not to meditate beforehand how to answer, 15for I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which none of your adversaries will be able to withstand or contradict.

  2. The story of the widow shows us it is the relative value of what we give that matters as opposed to the ultimate value. The condition of the heart is what is most important . And there is great debate as to what the discussion that follows in this chapter is referring to. Is it events in the first century surrounding the destruction of the temple in 70AD that is referred to or those events occurring at the end times? I personally think it is a both/and. There are circumstances and events that are consistent with what happened in the first century as well as things that could happen in the end. Then there are things here that could only could apply to the end and fall in line with what the Old Testament describes as the day of the Lord. It provides good things to discuss and will be clearer as the end times unfold….

  3. Sorry I have been somewhat missing…albeit still in action! I have been listening to sermons and re-reading chapters earlier in Luke in preparation for our women’s Bible study. I also got a topic in my head that was bothering me, and so I started listening to online sermons about that as well.

    “Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.”
