Morning: Psalm 61, 62; I Kings 21:17-29; I Corinthians 1:20-31
Evening: Psalm 68:1-36; Matthew 4:12-17
You give yourself to what’s really important; you may even give your life for it. John the Baptist did. Then Jesus took up the same work, calling people to change direction and invest in a better world. It led to Jesus’ death too. This better world Jesus proclaimed is won by sacrificial love, which may seem more foolish to us than wise. This better world will be won by humble strength that we may now take for weakness. Ask yourself, though … Is there much about the values of our present world that should not be turned upside down?
