A Childish Generation

Luke 7:31-35 — “To what shall I liken the men of this generation? They are like children…” This was Jesus’ assessment of the people of His day when it came to their responses to the ministry of John the Baptist and to His own ministry. Popular opinion was fickle. People were inconsistent – condemning a man they once revered.

As we study this text we see that Jesus’ critique of His generation resonates strongly with our generation and perhaps it resonates with us. What is our Christian life like? Is it marked by inconsistency and criticism? Or by stability and commitment?
