Luke 11:29-54

The comparison between Jonah and Solomon and Jesus is interesting. One greater than them is here. How would you act if you were around someone wiser than Solomon?

In the conversation about tithing, I'd never notice, buried in the conflict, the theological reason why tithing is important. They were tithing religiously yet missed, or passed by, the justice and love of God. Tithing should be connected to justice and love!

I can't help but think of false religions, how they place great burdens on people. They don't go into grace and they hinder others from going in, too. I also worry how many pastors will hear from God, "You have taken away the key of knowledge." Frightening words for someone in my position.
