“But when Jesus perceived their thoughts, he answering said unto them, What reason ye in your hearts?”
We often have questions for what we go through on a daily basis.
Who? What? When? Where? How? Why? Many questions can run through our mind when we do not understand what is going on around us.
Jesus Christ asked these and many more questions within Luke’s Gospel that we can benefit from. Unlike us, He already knew the answers to the questions He asked; however, He asked them for a reason.
Luke 2:49 - "How is it that ye sought me?"
Luke 5:22 - "What reason ye in your hearts?"

Luke 6:33 - "And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same."
Luke 6:34 - "And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again."
Luke 6:39 - "Can the blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch?"

Luke 17:14 – “Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine?”
