The passage of Luke that we have for today helps us deal with God’s seeming silence. It’s a recounting of the many ways the Lord displays his kindness to his people even when he seems distant to us. We learn that when it seems God is giving us the silent treatment or that he just doesn’t care, we must remember that
He always does good to his people. We learn that he does us good in that he hears, he speaks, he disciplines, and he delivers.
