An earthy and earthly Jesus

Morning: Psalm 89:1-18; Genesis 49:1-28; I Corinthians 10:14-11:1

Do you have a gift you are shy about using because you want to refine it more and become more proficient, so you hide your light? Sometimes Jesus seems like a reluctant healer, not wanting to be seen, not wanting his work to be known.  He seems to be working things out … should he share his gifts with everyone or just a limited group. These very human qualities of Jesus bring him out of the realm of mythology and into the realm of the real.  Jesus is much more earth(l)y than we have sometimes thought him to be.
