Insights on Today's Reading
Luke 16 - Jesus spoke about the unjust steward in verses 1-9. He then spoke to His disciples about being faithful with whatever they had, verse10. At the end of this chapter from verses 19-31 Jesus spoke about a rich man and a poor man named Lazarus. Both of these men died. The rich man went to a place of torment while Lazarus rested in the "bosom of Abraham" verse 22, most likely "Paradise." The rich man wanted Lazarus to go back and warn his brothers but Abraham wouldn't let him. Abraham said that his brothers could hear of salvation through God's Word. And he then stated that if they didn't listen to God's Word, then even one "rising from the dead" wouldn't be able to convince them to be saved.
Luke 17:1-10 - Jesus warned against the offending of His "little ones" verse 2. He also spoke about the disciples service to God, that they should not serve to get special recognition, but they should serve out of a sense of duty and responsibility to Him.
