Luke 12:43-53

NLT 43 If the master returns and finds that the servant has done a good job, there will be a reward. NIV 43 It will be good for that servant whom the master finds doing so when he returns. NLT 44 I tell you the truth, the master will put that servant in charge of all he owns. NIV 44 Truly I tell you, he will put him in charge of all his possessions. NLT 45 But what if the servant thinks, ‘My master won’t be back for a while,’ and he begins beating the other servants, partying, and getting drunk? NIV 45 But suppose the servant says to himself, ‘My master is taking a long time in coming,’ and he then begins to beat the other servants, both men and women, and to eat and drink and get drunk. NLT 46 The master will return unannounced and unexpected, and he will cut the servant in pieces and banish him with the unfaithful. NIV 46 The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the unbelievers. NLT 47 “And a servant who knows what the master wants, but isn’t prepared and doesn’t carry out those instructions, will be severely punished. NIV 47 “The servant who knows the master’s will and does not get ready or does not do what the master wants will be beaten with many blows. NLT 48 But someone who does not know, and then does something wrong, will be punished only lightly. When someone has been given much, much will be required in return; and when someone has been entrusted with much, even more will be required. NIV 48 But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked. NLT 49 “I have come to set the world on fire, and I wish it were already burning! NIV 49 “I have come to bring fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled! NLT 50 I have a terrible baptism of suffering ahead of me, and I am under a heavy burden until it is accomplished. NIV 50 But I have a baptism to undergo, and what constraint I am under until it is completed! NLT 51 Do you think I have come to bring peace to the earth? No, I have come to divide people against each other! NIV 51 Do you think I came to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but division. NLT 52 From now on families will be split apart, three in favor of me, and two against—or two in favor and three against. NIV 52 From now on there will be five in one family divided against each other, three against two and two against three. NLT 53 ‘Father will be divided against son and son against father; mother against daughter and daughter against mother; and mother-in-law against daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.’ ” NIV 53 They will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.”
