Sunday Homework

Bible Studying Time!

So this past Sunday our pastor gave us some homework to read a Passage in Luke. The specific passage was Luke 6:20-26. I think it was that one any way. He mentioned something about something, it's Tuesday and I straight forgot. I just know it was in Luke and had the number six in it a few times so I found this passage and it makes sense to talk about it.

You wanna fight about it?

I will give you mt idea of what it means and you let me know what you think. 

My answer is I have no idea. Why are the poor, hungry, sad, and the people being hated on the blessed? Then the other people not blessed? Is it saying that everyone needs to suffer to get God's grace? whole thing leaves me with more questions than answers. This was an unproductive post I think. I really need someone to comment on this. 

This is what the passage says, the NIV version.

20 Looking at his disciples, he said: “Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God.
21 Blessed are you who hunger now, for you will be satisfied. Blessed are you who weep now,  for you will laugh.
22 Blessed are you when people hate you, when they exclude you and insult you and reject your name as evil, because of the Son of Man.
23 “Rejoice in that day and leap for joy, because great is your reward in heaven. For that is how their Ancestors Treated the prophets.
24 “But woe to you who are rich, for you have already received your comfort.
25 Woe to you who are well fed now, for you will go hungry. Woe to you who laugh now, for you will mourn and weep.
26 Woe to you when everyone speaks well of you, for that is how their ancestors treated the false prophets.
