An Instructor of the Foolish: Jesus & the Goon Squad

Luke15:1 Now the tax collectors and “sinners” were all gathering around to hear him. 2 But the Pharisees and the teachers of the law muttered, “This man welcomes sinners and eats with them.”

Isn’t it ironic how Jesus main squad consisted of Goons, straight “sinners”!? Gentiles, people who society deemed unworthy or different because they were not apart of the Israelite (Gods chosen) people or nations. But, who was always gathered around Jesus?? Who. were the ones that showed Jesus the utmost respect and attention?? Verse two, the Pharisees (kings of the nations) and the teachers of the law set very bad examples for the people and still continue to do so today.

These muttering blasphemous hypocrites believe they know everything about the law; the very same people robbing the temples and leading the world astray. They knew so much that they killed the Son of Man. They did not recognized Jesus because the were such “Masters of the law” . The gentiles HUMBLED themselves to Jesus allowing their blessings to pour in and their sins to be forgiven. For Light they went to the source, not the Reflects.

Romans 2:19 if you are convinced that you are a guide for the blind, a light for those who are in the dark, 20 an instructor of the foolish, a teacher of infants, because you have in the law the embodiment of knowledge and truth– 21 you, then, who teach others, do you not teach yourself? You who preach against stealing, do you steal? 22 You who say that people should not commit adultery, do you commit adultery? You who abhor idols, do you rob temples? 23 You who brag about the law, do you dishonor God by breaking the law? 24 As it is written: “God’s name is blasphemed among the Gentiles because of you.”

Life lesson can come from anyone, humble your selves and listen. It could be God talking!

Be Blessed
