You are Invited

Woe to you who are well fed now, for you will go hungry. Woe to you who laugh now, for you will mourn and weep. Luke 6:25

Today you are invited to consider what this verse means to you. Does it relate solely to food and amusement, or can you read more into it? Could it mean satisfaction in the praise of others or arrogant laughter? Why would Jesus tell us not to eat or laugh? How do the words speak to you at this time? Are they a prompt to consider others more; to be more compassionate or sensitive to the needs and emotions of others? Ask Jesus today what He is saying to you. Again, record His answer in a journal, that you may remember.

May God bless you with an awareness of the needs of others today and the compassion to help them however they need help.

About Mandy Hackland

My love in life is to encourage others to deepen their relationship with God. I write devotional material, stories and small group studies with that in mind. I live in South Africa and also love spending time in the bush, bird watching and walking. I have moved to the coast and am enjoying the green spaces and beautiful vistas that surround me, reminding me of God's grace every day.
