Pugnacious (Luke 14:1-6)

Good morning all,

The word of the day is “pugnacious.”    It always seems that Jesus had opposition from people wherever you went.  The cool thing about this is that he never really did much more than respond to people in a godly manner.  Could you imagine having the kind of scrutiny that Jesus faced from the opposition?  His masterful way of responding to people is a testimony to the reasons why we believe in the Savior.

“And Jesus answering spake unto the lawyers and Pharisees, saying, “Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath day?’ And they held their peace.”
~Luke 14:3

My question today is: how do you respond when you are faced with opposition?  I think it is important for Christians to understand that people are always watching us.  I know it does not seem fair sometimes, but the reality is that we are a representation of everything that we follow.  My prayer for you today is that God would give you an attitude of love toward those who seem to be pugnacious in their thoughts or actions towards God.

Praying for you,
