In Luke 21, Jesus points to a certain widow as an example of giving, Jesus foretells of the destruction of the Temple and Jerusalem, He teaches on His return and the importance of being read, Luke records how Jesus would spend the night on the Mt. of Olives and then in the morning the people would come to hear Him teach in the Temple. The very last verse of this chapter stood out to me this morning – “And all the people would get up early in the morning to come to Him in the temple to listen to Him.” The fact that the people got up early to hear Jesus teach shows their eagerness and desire to hear Jesus’ words and learn from Him. O that God’s people to day would have the same eagerness and desire to learn from Jesus in His Word. Lord, continue to grow my desire to know You more and to learn from You in Your Word.
