An Umbrella Not for the Skeptic - Episode 21
“Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you suddenly like a trap. For it will come on all those who live on the face of the whole earth.Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.”
Luke 21, 34-36 (NIV)
Today's passage from the Gospel according to Luke teaches us the importance of vigilance and nurturing hope. Jesus, who enjoyed a good meal in fine company, also reminds us not to overindulge in gluttony and drunkenness. The point being, even the best diet is of no help when the heart becomes burdened both by sin and heavy meals!
