Aneede Sunday, Sunday of Faithful Departed

Geneva Notes/ Commentary on Luke 12:32-48

From the Geneva Notes.

Lu 12:32
12:32 {9} Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good
pleasure to give you the kingdom.

(9) It is a foolish thing not to look for small things at the
hands of him who freely gives us the greatest things.

Lu 12:33
12:33 {10} Sell that ye have, and give {k} alms; provide
yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the
heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth,
neither moth corrupteth.

(10) A godly bountifulness is a proper way to get true riches.
(k) This is the figure of speech metonymy, for by this
word "alms" is meant that compassion and friendliness
of a heart that cares tenderly for the misery and poor
condition of a man, and shows this feeling by some
gift, and has the name given to it in the Greek language
of mercy and compassion: and therefore he is said to
give alms who gives something to another, and gives to
the poor, showing by this that he pities their poor
condition.

Lu 12:35
12:35 {11} Let your loins be girded about, and [your] lights
burning;

(11) The life of the faithful servants of God in this world is
certainly a diligent journey, having the light of the word
going before the journey.

Lu 12:40
12:40 {12} Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh
at an hour when ye think not.

(12) None need to watch more than they that have some degree of
honour in the household of God.

Lu 12:42
12:42 And the Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise
steward, whom [his] lord shall make ruler over his
household, to give [them their] {l} portion of meat in due
season?

(l) That is, every month the measure of corn that was
given to them.

Lu 12:48
12:48 But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of
stripes, shall be beaten with few [stripes]. For unto
whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required:
and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask
{m} the more.

(m) More than the one who did not receive as much.
