Matthew 11:20-30, Woes

Narrative Lectionary Key Verse for Today

At that time Jesus said, “I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and the intelligent and have revealed them to infants
— Matthew 11:25

NL Daily Devotion for Friday, February 22, 2019

by Daniel D. Maurer, Clergy Stuff


The one saving grace, I believe, with today’s reading is that Jesus drops the zinger to all of those in power who had just heard Jesus proclaim his woes to them!

The wisdom of God is found in the cries and smiles of little babies. It makes me happy to know that those who think they are powerful and neglect or hurt others will not be the ones who ultimately prevail.

God works in little ways, to bring about big things.
