What is going on in today’s Gospel? Isn’t Jesus about bringing people together? Love? Forgiveness?
Why is he talking about causing division?
Why does he want to “set the earth on fire?”
Listen closely to today’s reading from the Gospel of Luke, Chapter 12, Verse 49 and following.
Jesus is not suggesting we go out and start hating our parents, siblings or in-laws!
You are going to want to pay close attention to what he is telling us today.
