The Father’s Good Pleasure

We have tons of opportunities to be afraid. We have all sorts of reasons to be worried. Jesus knows and understands this about us. In Luke 12, Jesus combats our fear and worry with a couple of warnings, a repeated assurance and a stunning promise.
– Be on your guard against hypocrisy and greed.
– You are valuable. You are worth a lot!
– Your heavenly Father delights to give you the kingdom.
Jesus gave us these warnings and affirmations to set us free. He wants us to be free to speak as the Holy Spirit gives us words to say. He wants us to be free to be generous. Our Father is fully pleased to give us his kingdom!
