[Y]e pay tithe [but] have omitted the weightier matters of .. judgment, mercy, and faith” – Matthew 23:23

Those wanting just enough of God to be comfortable, just enough religion to feel good about themselves, were never happy with Jesus. He likes to meddle too much!

Jesus is not content to sit quietly as we live our lives our way. He’s like my youth director friend who was fired. He was doing fine, the pastor said, until he started asking the kids for commitment.

But that’s Jesus. To outsiders it’s considered meddling but to those who know him it’s not meddling at all — its his love and mercy. Doing the right thing is the blessing to us.

Sound Bite: “That’s not meddling, that’s God’s love!”
Prayer: “Jesus, have your way in me, help me to give my all for you. Amen!”

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.” – Romans 12:1

God is not interested in a cold dead sacrifice. He wants something alive and functional in this present world.

Recently a popular movie called “The Bucket List” showed two dying men on a mission to complete the list of things they wanted to accomplish before they “Kicked the Bucket!”

Tear up your bucket list on God’s altar.

It’s “reasonable service” to pray,

“Father, here is my body – my hands, my feet, my eyes, my mouth, all of me – including everything I ever wanted to do with them.” – (Your name goes here)
