Cut it Down or Show Mercy?

02/28/2016

When you’re in trouble, when you cause trouble, you can still count on God’s mercy. My thoughts on tying these ideas to the Sunday readings for the Third Week of Lent. And a quick #dadupdate

You Have Everything I Have!

02/28/2016

If Your Brother Was Going to Kill You…

02/28/2016

My take on the brothers treating Joseph with such hatred and the tenant farmers who killed even the vineyard owner’s son. How much mercy could I muster?

If someone could peer into your heart and mind, what would they see?

Crashing Waves, A Plot to Kill, and Humility Revisited

02/24/2016

A crazy windy day on the lakefront. What Jeremiah had in common with the current political process. And maybe the mother of Zebedee’s sons should have watched yesterday’s video.

Who is the Most Humble Person You Know?

02/23/2016

And do you know the true definition of humility?

“Whoever exalts himself will be humbled; but whoever humbles himself will be exalted.”

Jesus speaking to the crowds and to His disciples in Matthew 23:12

I struggle with this every single day. Typically, when I get too full of myself, God finds a way to knock me down a peg or two.

It’s a natural part of the human condition to be pleased with our own accomplishments. Consider children seeking approval of a parent, sibling, or playmate.

Part of our normal development is striving for achievement.

We begin life completely and utterly helpless. We learn from our parents and those who touch our tiny lives. Our parents are excited to hear us utter sounds, take our first steps, learn how to color, write, go potty, learn to read.

Achievement can be healthy and it can be unhealthy.

Jesus specifically points out the scribes and Pharisees who “have taken their seat on the chair of Moses.” (Remember the chair of Peter yesterday? Compare and contrast.) Obviously, they allowed their positions of authority get out of control. They no longer see the humility of their role.

What is the true definition of humility?

Who is the most humble person you know?

Here are my thoughts:
