We live in a seemingly increasingly divisive world. We recognize that although none of the supposed dichotomies really align with THE dichotomy, it is far too easy for us to live as such.
When we find ourselves caught up in the world’s measuring sticks, stressed out and feeling inadequate because of our sinful hearts’ tendency to go along with relatively meaningless comparisons, let’s remember that one sinful human measured against other sinful humans is still just a sinful human.
Let this Holy Week reminds us of sacrificial love of Christ that surrounds us the rest of the year too.
We live in an interesting age. Most of the time now, it feels like the church is being, at best, marginalized, or perhaps – more often – trampled underfoot. Many scriptural truths are scorned by society at large, with that scorn perhaps teetering on the brink of tipping toward outright persecution.
“[The LORD] covers the heavens with clouds; he prepares rain for the earth; he makes grass grow on the hills. He gives to the beasts their food, and to the young ravens that cry.”Psalm 147:8-9
We interact with technology every day, every minute, pretty much every second. And on rare occasion, we may stop to ponder how technology is affecting our lives and relationships. Especially with the proliferation of social media, it is difficult to not think about how current tools of communication play a formative role in our relationships and interactions with each other.
