Day 32 Devotional & Discussion – March 17, 2016

LUKE 4:16-30

“The day of the Lord’s favor” was understood by the Jews to be the year of Jubilee when the land would be returned to its original owners. Jesus’ coded words would be good news to those living under Roman occupation. While the crowd initially responded favorably to the message, they quickly turned on Jesus when he suggested that God’s favor would be shown to outsiders.

Questions for Reflection:

  1. When have you wanted to limit God’s vision of “place” and “belonging” to only those who deserve it?
  2. Who are the “undeserving” in your community that are included in the promise of God’s Jubilee blessing of “home”?
