Luke 7v31-35 - A people who had not repented

Adobe Acrobat

There are many preachers in the world. We have heard many different sermons. Some, we hope, were good. We could find many problems, if we tried. But after it all, our verdict is not the important one. It is God's verdict that matters. After we have said and done everything, he will give the final word. That's what happens in these verses. The people had said what they though about John, and about Jesus. They had done what they thought best. But after it all, Jesus tells them the mind of God about their own lives.

Luke 7:31-35

31And the Lord said, Whereunto then shall I liken the men of this generation? and to what are they like? 32They are like unto children sitting in the marketplace, and calling one to another, and saying, We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned to you, and ye have not wept. 33For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine; and ye say, He hath a devil. 34The Son of man is come eating and drinking; and ye say, Behold a gluttonous man, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners! 35But wisdom is justified of all her children. (KJV)
