October 27, 2019, Luke 7:36-50 – Post 3

VIII.
Earlier this week the following quote from Dallas Willard came to my inbox. I am convinced it is the best way to close our reflections for this week.

IX.
Who deserves your blessing?

“You are really walking in the good news of the kingdom if you can go with confidence to any of the hopeless people around you and effortlessly convey assurance that they can now enter a blessed life with God.”

“Who would be on your list of “hopeless blessables” as found in today’s world? Certainly all of those on Jesus’ lists, for though they are merely illustrative, they also are timeless. But can we, following his lead as a teacher, concretize the gospel even more for those around us? Who would you regard as the most unfortunate people around you?”

Thanks for your time spent with the Scripture this week and your hearing of Dallas Willard’s insight.
