Two Options

There are a lot of options available to us in this world.

Sometimes we have only limited options, door one or door two?

The are consequences to our choices so we must choose carefully.

In the first century eating with someone was a sign of acceptance. Jesus practiced extreme radical inclusiveness by eating with everyone and anyone including tax collectors and pharisees. The pharisees were more exclusive of who they welcomed or ate with.

There are a lot of places that give special seating to those that are more important than others. At Jesus table all are welcome and equal.

Why do we want the best for only ourselves when God places the same importance on all us.

Jesus makes us comfortable if we are uncomfortable and uncomfortable if we are comfortable.

The two options are:

Humble yourself before God

Or

Be humbled by God

God is looking for people who are willing to look like Jesus.

Who is welcome in your life…who is not. Why?

The world is desparate for a group of people that look like Jesus.

Does your chuch look like Jesus?

Happy Mothers Day!

Most woman believe motherhood is the best thing that ever happened to them.

99 percent of woman hope there children are good people.

Most mothers feel they fall short.

What is the christian point of view about mothers?

Most country’s do not place a high value on woman.

What is Gods value for the role of woman?

The bible says there is no distinction in value and both men and woman are of equal value to God.

Scripture is not apposed to woman working outside the home but does encourage certain role within the home and their children and husbands.

We should pursue to do all God asks us to and continue to grow and improve. We will never become perfect. But mothers come close… At least in the eyes of their children.

They should not feel inadequate as they do more than most of the worlds population as they continually raise and mold the next generations.

Give honor where honor is due.

Once you have children you appreciate what your mothers go though dealing with selfish children.

Mothers are typically very selfless.

Give her the reward that is due.
