Counter Culture

Luke 13:30
“For behold, some are last who will be first, and some are first who will be last.”

Jesus says that the people this world might look down upon…those viewed as being “last”…the outcasts…might actually be looked upon as “first” in the viewpoint of God’s Kingdom. And the reverse is also true. What really matters is not winning or outward appearances…but our motivation. What is in our hearts? Are our actions motivated by ego and pride? This only brings about my kingdom. However…if we are motivated by love, mercy, forgiveness and compassion…then the Kingdom of God is at hand. In God’s kingdom, it’s all about working together to make sure all are cared for.

Suggested song of the day– “Shall We Sing” on the Listen to Your Heart album.
