Grace

You Are What You Eat

An old saying goes: The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree–implying the fruit (child) inherits the quality of the tree (parent). But which tree are we going to choose? Will we choose to be children of the world, carrying on in independence and bearing whatever natural consequences might follow from that decision? Or will we choose Jesus, living out of our spirit, according to the True Image we were created to resemble… the apples of His eye.

Are You an Excellent Driver?

Calling all cars… “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me–watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” (Matthew 11:28-30, The Message)
