Day 72 Jesus has harsh words for some cities Matt 11:20-24, Luke 10:13-15

Guided reflection: 

Wow, Jesus was not happy with the folks of the cities listed in our text today.  What was the issue?   They had seen and heard John the Baptist and had seen and heard the words and mighty acts of Jesus and they did not repent!  To them it was all a side show – not an invitation to a new way of life.  They missed what was right in front of them!  They chose to not see that the Messiah was in their midst.  Do you think God ever throws up His hands in frustration with you and me: “Yikes, I am revealing myself to them and they just don’t get it!”

Guided prayer: 

“Help me to have ears that hear and eyes that see and a heart that is open, O God. Keep me “motivatable” so that when I encounter your mighty work, I see it, get it, and allow you to change my heart.  In Jesus name I pray, Amen.”
