Daily D – Luke 19:11
Luke 19:11 The crowd was listening to everything Jesus said. And because he was nearing Jerusalem, he told them a story to correct the impression that the Kingdom of God would begin right away. (NLT)
Kind correction is a gift.
Jesus kindly prevented his followers from believing what was not true. He redirected their thoughts. He rechanneled their energy. He refocused their attention. Something bigger, better, and broader than their expectations was in play.
How often have you prayed, “O LORD, please correct me here and now and as often as necessary?” You might want to add it to your prayer repertoire.
Ignorance regarding God’s intentions for this world and his purpose for our lives leads to distracted thinking and unfocused activity.
Psalms is full of questions like, “How long, O LORD?” It is also full of requests like, “Show me the way I should go.” When we don’t know, let’s not guess. Let’s go to God who knows all things. Let’s ask him to place his thoughts in our minds, his words in our mouths, his strength in our bones.
Here and now, our Father in Heaven sees the end of this day as clearly as we see this moment. Let us entrust ourselves to him who knows the ending before the beginning. Let us join him in his purpose for these hours. Let us join him in what he chooses to do during all the days separating us from his immediate and unending presence.
I will welcome God’s kind correction and purposeful redirection.
Our Father, please correct me here and now and as often as necessary. Show me the way I should go. Empower me with your thoughts, your words, and your strength. Amen.

Romans 2:4 Don’t you see how wonderfully kind, tolerant, and patient God is with you? Does this mean nothing to you? Can’t you see that his kindness is intended to turn you from your sin?
Acts 18:24-26 Meanwhile, a Jew named Apollos, an eloquent speaker who knew the Scriptures well, had arrived in Ephesus from Alexandria in Egypt. He had been taught the way of the Lord, and he taught others about Jesus with an enthusiastic spirit and with accuracy. However, he knew only about John’s baptism. When Priscilla and Aquila heard him preaching boldly in the synagogue, they took him aside and explained the way of God even more accurately.
