Luke 13:1-17

Here we’re reminded that bad things happen to everyone. What is our response? Our response should be to get our hearts right with God, before it’s too late! And Jesus uses the parable of the fig tree to warn the nation that they need to get right with God while there is still time.

Jesus goes on to teach that God’s mercy extends beyond the issue of judgment. Jesus heals a woman on the Sabbath and shows the religious authorities that they are hypocrites, because they are willing to show mercy to animals but not to other human beings!

The challenge for us is to realize that we all are in the same boat, we all need to repent, and we all need to extend and receive mercy.
