Luke 21

Jesus commends a widow for putting just a little in the offering, when the rich parade their much larger gifts.
When the disciples admire the temple buildings, Jesus says it's going to be destroyed.  They ask when.
Jesus foretells warfare, natural disaster and persecution, Jerusalem's fall and His return.
Be ready for it, and don't get lazy or immoral.  Trust the Spirit for what to say.  Discern the times.

Don't overly admire wealth.  Heart matters more.
Judgment will come on the wicked, and some of the righteous will get caught in the persecution backlash.
Don't confuse delay in judgment with no impending judgment.  Serve your master faithfully, though He delay in returning.
