Luke 18 – Who will God bless

The start of Luke 18 is a strange parable.  Jesus describes an UNJUST judge who eventually gives the Widow justice because she is persistent, and then encourages us to be persistent because God is JUST so He WILL answer our prayers.

Then come four different pictures of who will see God’s answers to their prayers

The Tax Collector at the temple sees God’s blessing whilst the Pharisee does not.

The Children receive a blessing whilst the Disciples get a telling off

The Rich Man missed out on God’s blessing because his possession mattered more to him.

The Blind Man, rebuked by the crowd, receives Jesus’ healing.

 

Who will receive God’s blessing?  Well, pretty much everyone that didn’t deserve it!
