Proper 13 (18) 2016 – Luke 12:13

Thursday, July 28, 2016

Luke 12:13Someone in the crowd said to Jesus, “Teacher, tell my brother to divide the family inheritance with me.”

My first thought on reading this verse was, “Jesus got some random questions thrown his way.”  But on second thought, Jesus had created safe space, sanctuary so to speak, where this person felt comfortable asking Jesus about an issue that obviously was obviously weighing heavily on him.  We need to make sure our congregations are seen as sanctuaries for the concerns of all who enter them.

Merciful God, help us to keep our minds and hearts open and welcoming to all our brothers and sisters.  Amen.
