Dimensions of Jesus teaching are radical. Most of the people who were the center of the Gospel have no place in our lives. What does that tell us? Jesus took people whom you and I would mindlessly pass on the street.
Jesus completely rejected the social norms of his day, and I would suspect he would do the same in our lives today.
This always makes me ponder and wonder about things in life. Do I talk to the people who need the encouragement or challenge myself to seek them out.
Point to Ponder: Every person is as important and valuable as the person you consider most important and valuable.
Verse to Live: “Give justice to the weak and the orphan; maintain the right of the lowly and the destitute. Rescue the weak and the needy.” Psalm 82:3-4
Comment or consider this question: What is God saying to you through this teaching today?
Lord, open my eyes to I can see every person I encounter each day as you see them.
