Where the world comes to study the Bible

Lesson 77: The Possibility and Practice of Discernment (Luke 12:54-59)

Can you know how to make wise decisions in life? Can you know whom to follow? These are important questions that are applicable to pretty well everyone each and every day. Jesus addressed the crowds concerning issues such as these and revealed to them their need to practice consistency in their daily discernment. He reminded them that they had little trouble making basic weather predictions, but at the same time they were not interpreting well the major things that we’re going on around them. Learning to correct this, he would emphasize, was something that they needed to grasp immediately. Pastor Daniel gives two simple instructions from the passage at hand: 1) Know what God wants you to do, and 2) Do it. Helping us to understand the danger of a life not centered on God’s revelation, the Bible, he challenges us to shape our lives by that Truth and not import the values of the culture around us.
