01 Jul Matthew 11:16-19

16 “But to what shall I compare this generation? It is like children sitting in the market places, who call out to the other children, 17 and say, ‘We played the flute for you, and you did not dance; we sang a dirge, and you did not mourn.’ 18 For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, ‘He has a demon!’ 19 The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, ‘Behold, a gluttonous man and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!’ Yet wisdom is vindicated by her deeds.”

How did Jesus describe the 1st century generation related to matters of faith? How do the cynical, skeptical, and critical attitudes of the first century compare to the attitudes of the 21st century? What is your attitude as you consider Jesus and the transformational work He wants to do in your life?
