Luke 23:28-31

Passage: 

But Jesus turned to them and said, "Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me, but weep for yourselves and for your children. For the days are surely coming when they will say, 'Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bore, and the breasts that never nursed.' Then they will begin to say to the mountains, 'Fall on us'; and to the hills, 'Cover us.' For if they do this when the wood is green, what will happen when it is dry?"

Question: 

I interpret this to mean, Jesus is telling the sad woman that if you think things are corrupt now, while the trees are green, it can and will get worse. The trees will one day be dry, so to speak, and man will be even more corrupt. Woman will not be want to any longer be bringing children into such an evil place. Is this somewhat correct?

Comment: 
I think your understanding is excellent. The women are weeping over Jesus' arrest; he is warning them that there are more challenging days to come.  Perhaps "the wood" that is green represents his own presence and message.
 
Blessings!
