“Greater than Anything”
Luke 11: 31b, 32b: “Something greater than Solomon is here … Something greater than Jonah is here.” Solomon was the wisest person of his day (2 Chronicles 1: 11, 12), and the richest to boot. Jonah was the epitome of evangelism, with an impressive one hundred percent conversion rate (Jonah 2: 5). But if we put our trust in philosophy (love of wisdom), money, or religious fervor alone as that which will change the world, we will be disappointed. Without the “something greater” (love, 1 Corinthians 13: 13) of Jesus, society will continue to regress. Another sakit-filled truth!
