Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Luke 12:32

_ _ little flock, etc. — How sublime and touching a contrast between this tender and pitying appellation, “Little flock” (in the original a double diminutive, which in German can be expressed, but not in English) — and the “good pleasure” of the Father to give them the Kingdom; the one recalling the insignificance and helplessness of that then literal handful of disciples, the other holding up to their view the eternal love that encircled them, the everlasting arms that were underneath them, and the high inheritance awaiting them! — “the kingdom”; grand word; then why not “bread” (Luke 12:31 [Bengel]). Well might He say, “Fear not!”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Luke 12:22-40.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Luke 12:32

It is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom — How much more food and raiment? And since ye have such an inheritance, regard not your earthly possessions.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Luke 12:32

(9) Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.

(9) It is a foolish thing not to look for small things at the hands of him who freely gives us the greatest things.
