But he looked at them and said, “Then what is the meaning of this Scripture:[b]
The stone that the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone?[c]
18 Everyone who falls on that stone will be broken to pieces, but on whomever it falls, it will shatter him.”Luke 20:17-18 CSB
The passage illustrates the importance of being a beacon of light in dim, dark places, as guided by Luke 11:33-36. One must not let comfort lead to dulled awareness, but instead consciously illuminate one’s environment. It urges self-reflection on how one’s personal light can lead others towards embracing Jesus.
