THE BLESSING IN WHEN SOMEONE IS TRYING TO ‘USE YOU’…

Please don’t forget this…

BE BLESSTIFIED!

The Pharisees, scribes, and religious leaders were constantly trying to trap and accuse Jesus. Many times that was their sole reason for going to the synagogue when they knew He was there (Mark 3:1-6).

In Luke 14 Jesus was at the home of one of the rulers of the Pharisees. You didn’t get into the home of a ruler without an invitation. This was an invitation only ‘event’ which is confirmed in verse 7 of this chapter ( So He told a parable to those who were invited, when He noted how they chose the best places, saying to them…). There was also a man with extreme swelling of his arms and legs (dropsy) there, but why was he invited too? Why was this man who was looked down upon invited to the ruler’s home? My thought is they were using him just so see if Jesus would heal him on…

  1. Thank you for this. Yesterday evening, my husband and I were at a Bible study in our church when a woman walked in that none of us knew. She said she was passing through on a long drive across country (our town is just off of I-40).

    We welcomed her, gave her some food and tea, and then continued with our study. As we neared the time to close, she suddenly interrupted with a long, involved story about how she needs $12,000. To help someone else, not herself. And all she had, she said, was $125 in cash, which she pulled out of her purse to show us. It wasn’t enough, she said, to get her all the way back to her home.

    I felt in my heart that she was trying to scam us, that her story was made up. I prayed for her, but I didn’t give her any money. My husband and I didn’t have any to give, even if we had felt that her story was genuine.

    The whole thing troubled me. But after reading this, I am glad she came by our Bible study. She heard the Word! Seeds were planted!
