I believe the parables in Matthew 13 can remind us of who God is and who we are.
Today we are putting ourselves in the story to see what it reveals about ourselves, God, and the world as a whole.
Our actions always reveal our value-systems.
The good news is that through Christ we can change the narrative.
Right now, we live in a dark time, but we have a hope in Jesus that can’t be stolen, removed, revoked, or destroyed.
Before our behavior changes, our beliefs have to change because our actions always follow our beliefs.
Pride and insecurity seem to be complete opposites but they have one major thing in common: they value the same thing.
What do you do when you’re doing life, laboring beside, or hanging out with people who believe in the same God as you, but value incredibly different things?
Jesus lived out truth and love to the people around him regardless of where they came from or what they looked like or even what they believed. Let’s strive to be more like Jesus today!
