Look Up On People
We tend to look down on people because we think we know them and understand the situations they are in. So, what happens when God opens our eyes to see beauty, rather than ashes, in people's lives? We look up on people as God lavishes his love on them.
Barriers and Blind Spots
It is without question that we, the Church, have to take action in response to the social issues and sins in our country and around the world. But with all the talk about seeking justice and loving others, it seems like the real battle is in the hearts of Christians. That is, we all have potential barriers and blindspots that have hindere, and often blocked, our pursuit of mercy, justice, and love. The tragic thing is that most of us don't know it, or...won't admit it! How do we pursue Micah 6:8 in a manner that is authentic and God-centered? We believe that the changed heart WILL lead a person to action. We also believe that action without a changed heart is just as tragic in missing out on God's heart and purposes in building His kingdom.
