“But they could think of nothing, because all the people hung on every word he said.” (Luke 19:48 NLT)
The chief priests are plotting how to get rid of Jesus. But he has become too popular. I love how this translation phrases it.
They hung on every word he said.
Not just listening, but hanging on. Waiting expectantly for every single thing he said.
In these days of distractions and temptations, are we listening? If we are, that may not be enough.
