- What strikes you as most important about this parable?
- One of the themes throughout the Gospel of Luke is the great reversal. How is that played out here?
- In the story, who is given a name? Who isn't?
I used to think when I was a child that Christ might have been exaggerating when he warned about the danger of wealth. Today I know better. I know how very hard it is to be rich and still keep the milk of human kindness. Money has a dangerous way of putting scales on ones' eyes, a dangerous way of freezing people's hands, eyes, lips, and hearts.
As always, I look forward to worshiping with you. Also, I pray you enjoy this beautiful weather on your journey toward Sunday.
