September 15: Luke 6:39-42

Key Verse: Luke 6:40
The student is not above the teacher, but everyone who is fully trained will be like their teacher.

One of the things I don’t like about our society is the way young people seem to have been brought up to expect certain things in life as if they are rights rather than things earned or learned. I’m not quite sure how this came about since my parents brought me up to learn and earn rewards in life. This also meant sharing the knowledge we have with others so they are not left behind or left alone.

On my YouTube channel there is a video I put together for the children's song “Is There a Plank in Your Eye” which regularly gets viewers from all over the world. A simple song about these verses which I put together for use during the children’s clubs I helped to run a while ago. An effective method of getting the idea across, but it does not do justice to these verses.

We need to remember we all depend on each others and we have a task to teach the next generation, not just about life, but about God and the way he wants us to live by. Making sure we always try to do righteous acts and not blame others for things we also do wrong.

The blame culture in the world is not helping Christians or any other people. If we, as Christians, continue to join in with the blame culture of this world we are not going to further God’s Word like He wants us to because others will not look to us for help because they feel injustice instead of mercy and justice like God wants us to teach.

Points to Ponder:
Are you quick to blame others?

Will you try helping someone instead of blaming them?
