Luke 20:41-44

41 Then Jesus said to them, “Why is it said that the Messiah is the son of David? 42 David himself declares in the Book of Psalms: “‘The Lord said to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand 43 until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet.”’ 44 David calls him ‘Lord.’ How then can he be his son?”

Jesus is unravelling the thinking and teaching of the Pharisees. They make the mistake of thinking they know better. He leaves this topic on a question – unanswered and confusing for the Pharisees who were putting so much weight on lineage.  He is shifting the weight to say that the Messiah is the Son of God.

How to apply this? Jesus is my Lord. I don’t want my thoughts and faith with the weight on the wrong thing. I never want to limit Him by my thinking – guessing that I know His ways. The only solution is to seek Him and be open to Him changing my mind and heart from the inside out.
