Luke 12:49-59

Division
Luke 12:49-53

Jesus: I am come to send fire on the earth; and what I will is that it be already kindled? But I have a baptism to be baptized with; and how am I straitened till it be accomplished. Do you suppose that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, No; but rather division: For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three. The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. 


Discerning the Times

Luke 12:54-56

Jesus (to the people): When you see a cloud rise out of the west, immediately you say, There comes a shower; and so it is. And when you see the south wind blow, you say, There will be heat; and it comes to pass. You hypocrites, you can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that you do not discern this time? 

Similar thought in Matthew 16:2-3.

Jesus: When it is evening, you say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red. And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowring. O you hypocrites, you can discern the face of the sky; but can you not discern the signs of the times? 


Judge What Is Right

Luke 12:57-59

Yea, and why even of yourselves do you not judge what is right? When you go with your adversary to the magistrate, as you are in the way, give diligence that you may be delivered from him; lest he compels you to go to the judge, and the judge deliver you to the officer, and the officer cast you into prison. I tell you, you shall not depart from here, till you have paid the very last mite.
