19th September 2012 Luke 7:31-35

Jesus went on to say, “To what, then, can I compare the people of this generation? What are they like?  They are like children sitting in the marketplace and calling out to each other:“‘We played the pipe for you,    and you did not dance;we sang a dirge,    and you did not cry.’ For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine,and you say, ‘He has a demon.’  The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and you say, ‘Here is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners.’ But wisdom is proved right by all her children.”

Jesus is talking about the criticisms and lack of acceptance that he received and as Christians we still can experience this today.  But I don't believe we should see this as something we should be pitied for, instead we should meet people where they are and help them truly understand what Jesus has for them in their lives.
