Luke 7:31-32 King James Version (KJV)
31 And the Lord said, Whereunto then shall I liken the men of this generation? and to what are they like?
32 They are like unto children sitting in the marketplace, and calling one to another, and saying, We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned to you, and ye have not wept.

Luke 7:31-32 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)

31 “Therefore,” said the Lord, “how can I describe the people of this generation? What are they like? 32 They are like children sitting in the marketplaces, calling to one another,
‘We made happy music, but you wouldn’t dance!
We made sad music, but you wouldn’t cry!’

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

31 We shouldn’t be the ones to do this but the Lord can, we may think this generation is worse then the last and it may well be but it up to God to truly decide that.

32 This generation expected Him to react if they acted. We should act base off of God and it shouldn’t be the other way around. The people wanted to know and control who God would act, we should instead be controlled by His actions that He has planned for us.

From John MacArthurh

Christ used strong derision to rebuke the Pharisees. He suggested they were behaving childishly, determined not to be pleased, whether invited to “dance” (a reference to Christ’s joyous style of ministry, “eating and drinking” with sinners—v. 34), or urged to “weep” (a reference to John the Baptist’s call to repentance, and John’s more austere manner of ministry—v. 33).

MacArthur makes it sound like Christ was a party animal.
