57 “Why don’t you judge for yourselves what is right? 58 As you are going with your adversary to the magistrate, try hard to be reconciled on the way, or your adversary may drag you off to the judge, and the judge turn you over to the officer, and the officer throw you into prison. 59 I tell you, you will not get out until you have paid the last penny.”
Jesus is clear – believing in him will challenge your relationships. He came to speak for the truth and the truth causes a division among people and so the natural outcome is happening.
Jesus however is somewhat perplexed in that the people can understand the signs of nature but not the signs of the times. We need not si
mply to be able to tell the changes in nature, but even more so the signs of the times, the changes in attitude and behaviours so that we can help people navigate life well.
Father, help me to know what is happening in our world and bring Your wisdom to this around me.
