Luke 6:20-21 (NIV)
OK, I think I get this. Those (of His disciples ?) who were hungry would be blessed later.
"Looking at his disciples, he said:
"Blessed are you who are poor,
for yours is the kingdom of God.
Blessed are you who hunger now,
for you will be satisfied.
Luke 6:24-25 (NIV)
Yikes, I'm not feeling so good about the sounds of this part.
But woe to you who are rich,
for you have already received your comfort.
Woe to you who are well fed now,
for you will go hungry.
Were these words written directly to me? Or is this a record of Jesus' words to His 12 disciples and some other specific rich people in that audience?
I'm hoping Jesus was talking about some other rich and well fed people - not directly to me!
