Luke 7:33-34 For John the Baptist has come eating no bread and drinking no wine, and you say, “He has a demon”; the Son of Man has come eating and drinking, and you say, “Look, a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!”
Jesus was also a wildly successful preacher and no doubt felt the weight of others’ condemnation. Yet he didn’t let that stop him from preaching his message and loving his neighbors, regardless of the consequences.
MOVING FORWARD: Have you ever felt like you’re in a no-win situation? How can the witness of Jesus offer you a way forward?
