In a post the day before yesterday, I mentioned that when Paul expected his followers to be good in so many ways, it was like a wake-up call. In today's Gospel reading from Luke 13, we really get the big wake-up call from the Lord himself. In verses 22-30, he answered the question "Lord, will only a few people be saved?" asked by someone. He surely instilled some fear in those who heard him. Those words are exactly what the world of today needs to hear. Do you think that the Lord was just kidding?
