Jesus said to the crowds: “To what shall I compare the people of this generation?” (Luke 7:31-35)
After asking this rhetorical question of the crowd, Jesus went on to give some of the harshest criticism we hear from Him in the gospels, an indictment of the “people of this generation.”
He painted His listeners as people who were never satisfied, people who wanted to sit back and have things come to them.
Are we willing to work for our faith? Do we sit in judgment of others and point fingers of indignation, rather than putting our efforts toward making a difference in the world?
We pick at our faith and poke holes in our beliefs because complete trust is challenging.
Pray today for the courage to leave yourself vulnerable. Ask God to deepen your faith and make you an instrument of His peace.
