Watch out! Don’t let your hearts be dulled by carousing and drunkenness, and by the worries of this life. Don’t let that day catch you unaware, like a trap. For that day will come upon everyone living on the earth.
– Luke 21:34-35 (NLT)
This week’s focus: Easter
Hope you had a great Palm Sunday. This week will focus on verses from the final week of Jesus’s life.
In Luke 21, after watching the widow offer her mite at the Temple, Jesus gives a final glimpse of the future to his disciples before the Last Supper. He foretells the destruction of Jerusalem and the Jewish diaspora, and says some words about the end times.
He concludes by telling us the signs of the times are like the signs of the seasons. When the trees sprout leaves, summer is near. Finally he offers the warning in verses 34-35.
