Attitude & Effort
Our look at Jesus’ most extended and essential teaching continues this week. Commonly called The Sermon on the Mount (because the text tells us Jesus went up on a mountain to speak), these three chapters (5-7) in the gospel of Matthew are best understood as the epitome of how best to follow Jesus according to Jesus. This Sunday, February 10th, we consider, the conclusion of Jesus’ Kin-dom Manifesto.
While it is perhaps a bit less familiar than the Beatitudes (i.e. the series of blessings with which Jesus begins his sermon),offers thoughts we’ve likely encountered somewhere. But those thoughts tend to sound a bit…weird to our ears.
Logs and planks? Pearls and pigs? Bread and stones (Hey! Didn’t we see that connection somewhere recently??) Fish and snakes?
What in the world is Jesus talking about here? And what does all this have to do with best practices in home building?
Be in worship this Sunday, February 10th, to see what we can make of all this in Pastor Dave’s sermon, “Attitude and Effort.”
All are welcome!
