20 Then Jesus began to criticize openly the cities in which he had done many of his miracles, because they did not repent. 21 “Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! If the miracles done in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes. 22 But I tell you, it will be more bearable for Tyre and Sidon on the day of judgment than for you! 23 And you, Capernaum, will you be exalted to heaven? No, you will be thrown down to Hades! For if the miracles done among you had been done in Sodom, it would have continued to this day. 24 But I tell you, it will be more bearable for the region of Sodom on the day of judgment than for you!”(Matthew 11:20-24, NET)
Why do these cities not get it?
He had done miracles there but they still were not doing what they needed to do. It is like we don’t see the forest for the trees. Things from this world get in our way and we can not see what is right in front of us.
How can we stay focused on Jesus so we do not get distracted by the world and drawn away from God?
What can you do to stay focused on Jesus?
