The following verse guides and challenges me and points to where to find a better world, better places, and better state of being. It links in to today’s posts as well, in that “to live a life of love” (2 John 6, in the Bible), in which no harm is done to one’s neighbour, then one doesn’t commit adultery, or kill, and any other violation against another human being, and one can even reach the marginalized, because one is acting in love. I find the verse challenges and guides me at the spiritual level, to do as it says in my life and to consciously apply it. The real challenge is when one goes beyond one’s comfort zone by serving and befriending others who need it. Yet God sees the heart of the willing servant and does not discredit that. And there are more people more skilled than you and me who are up to that kind of service. As we all have our own gifts, this or that, which can de dispensed with an attitude and application of love for neighbour.
Most of the ending was just babble to me.

“The servant does not deserve thanks for obeying orders, does he? It is the same with you [Jesus’ disciples]: when you have done all you have been told to do, say, ‘We are ordinary servants; we have only done our duty.”
Luke 17:7-10, Good News Bible.
When I read the passage from the gospel of Luke, chapter thirteen verses 1-5, I wonder if anyone today would talk like Jesus did in that passage. Sure, some may, but not in the kind of way Jesus would.
Jesus had the best, if not perfect way of putting something. Sure, it would get a reaction, but Jesus knew how to put his message aptly. He would say it just as it should be said, just as the sender of the message intended it, no missing links, or showing up falsities. Jesus knew how to say things.
So, if Jesus talked about the matter of sin today, I wonder what reaction he would get?
