For the past month or so, there’s been one verse, in particular, that keeps springing to my mind.
No matter where we fall on the Martha and Mary spectrum, we are loved and accepted by God because of Jesus.
Let’s put ourselves in the story of Matthew 8 for just a moment to see what we learn about ourselves and the character of God.
I wonder if, during difficult times, Jesus marvels at the faith that we display in those little moments as we go about our days.
If our faith is depleted or has grown weary, Jesus is still present.
We will never be able to perfectly care for others, do justice, love mercy, or walk humbly, but we can become more and more like him each and every day.
I believe that learning how to be intentionally grateful in good times helps us better prepare for the rocky waters of life when they come.
Technology is not a thermostat but a thermometer that can tell us a great deal about ourselves that we might not recognize as readily any other way.
Nehemiah led the people in truth and justice.
Justice looks like Jesus.
God doesn’t want us to just know a bunch of stuff about him, but he wants us to be participants with him in faith and in life.
