Jan 26 – A Man in a Tree

Today in Luke 19, we hear the special story about Zacchaeus being restored. Traditionally, we hear about this man’s size and how he must climb a tree to see Jesus pass by from above the large crowd. Have you ever considered the spiritual interpretations offered by our Church Fathers

Dec 22 – Where did you come from?

Knowing where we came from is important in many ways, especially in preparing for where we are going. I’m not talking just about the our physical birth and ancestry, but also our faith and family’s spiritual heritage.

Dec 15 – The Great Banquet

Most of us can relate to being invited to a wedding, where we dress up and prepare for a big celebration with dinner and fellowship. In a similar way, we are preparing for a most special event in just a few weeks. It’s an invitation from God to draw closer to Him, through Jesus’ birth and coming into the world.

His sense of hearing was heightened since he wasn’t able to use his eyes, and he was both prepared and eager to encounter the Messiah.

Nov 24 – The Rich Young Ruler

When we read Luke 18:18 again or even the version in Matthew 19:16, we can understand that the young rich ruler earnestly desires something greater than what he has. He desires eternal life, but, what exactly does he believe that looks like? Will eternal life be a continuation of the sumptuous and material-filled life he’s already experienced? I know I can relate with this sense of eternal life, because it’s easy and it means you get to keep all your stuff! But, there’s one big problem with this,
