Meditating on...

Been thinking on these verses from Luke 4...

I see them as the guiding principle for the work we do. Its like the baseline to which we should compare our action/work/efforts... a benchmark, so to speak.

In what we do... do we seek to share the good news for the poor..? do we seek to free the oppressed..? help those burdened physically, mentally and spiritually..?

Do we seek to demonstrate another way... one based on unconditional love instead conditional acceptance..? one that doesn't perpetuate empty values and self interest..?

Think about it... and while do so... check out Isaiah 61 - the passage the Lord read from.

worth looking up the Isaiah passage and noting where Jesus stops and what he leaves out!

Laura Whispering said... we shouldn't "bind up the brokenhearted" or bestow "gladness instead of mourning"?
