Did you ever sit through a class (or a sermon) and realize that you didn’t pay attention? For whatever reason, you simply missed the point . . . or you chose to ignore it. Good teachers know that successful lessons will create what is called an “enduring understanding” in their students. The lesson will stay with them not only for the test but also for a lifetime. Luke 14 describes Jesus’ visit at the house of a prominent Pharisee. After Jesus healed a man with a noticeable ailment, the Pharisees showed no response (v. 4). They did not rejoice over the miraculous healing. They did not fall on their faces in worshipful reaction to this miracle.
