Luke 20:27-33

Luk 20:27 Now some Sadducees (who insist that a resurrection is not real) came to him.
Luk 20:28 They asked him, “Teacher, Moses wrote for us that if a man’s brother dies leaving a wife but no children, that man has to marry the widow and father children for his brother.
Luk 20:29 There once were seven brothers. The first one married a woman and died without children.
Luk 20:30 The second
Luk 20:31 and then the third married her, and in this same way all seven died, leaving no children.
Luk 20:32 Finally the woman died also.
Luk 20:33 So, at the resurrection, whose wife will this woman be? Because all seven had married her.”

today and tomorrow

I wanted to stop at the question, because it tells us something about the questioners. They regarded the idea of the physical resurrection as a joke. Their question reveals that they thought of a resurrection as an absurd thing. Life has transitions and seasons, but when it’s over, it’s over.

But Jesus preached a coming resurrection. He taught that life matters, because there can be another one. God has a plan for your life today, and tomorrow.

LORD, we surrender to the future you have planned for us, and to living your way today.
