Jesus concluded by emphasizing the importance of seeing people from God’s perspective (131):
Don’t think that I have come to bring peace to the world. No, I came to bring the fire of division to the world. Your testimonies about me will set family members against one another; sometimes, your worst enemies will be the members of your own family.
When you see clouds in the west, you say it’s going to rain — and it does. When you feel the south wind blowing, you say it’s going to be hot — and it is. You can discern variations in the weather.
Now learn to discern the signs of the times from God’s perspective.
Then you’ll be able to judge for yourselves the right thing to do.
For example, if someone brings a lawsuit against you and takes you to court, settle the dispute with him before you even get to court. Make that a priority before God.
(131) Luke 12:49-59
