Text: Luke 11.27-28
This time of year, people often offer their appreciation of the birth narrative of Jesus. However, our Lord and King desire more than mere appreciation. He desires committed discipleship! Today, we consider this truth by looking at the account of an unnamed woman with the wrong focus in Luke 11.

Though directed to the Northern Kingdom in the time of Jeroboam II, it is applicable for us today.
A reminder that it is better to give than to receive. However, this verse poses a few problems for the modern Christian reader. In this lesson we examine the verse, clarify the problem, and make application.
