Following Jesus in this crooked, twisted and evil world mandates that we choose “the narrow path” each and every day. The broad path leads to destruction and multitudes are on that path blindly following blind men. The destination is not in question – the pit!
Jesus tells a parable regarding the wheat and the tares and here is His response. “The slaves of the landowner came and said to him, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have tares? And he said to them, An, enemy has done this!’ The slaves said to him, ‘Do you want us, then, to go and gather them up?’ But he said, ‘No; for while you are gathering up the tares, you may uproot the wheat with them. Allow both to grow together until the harvest; and in the time of the harvest I will say to the reapers, “First gather up the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them up; but gather the wheat into my barn.” Matt. 13:24-30
This Sunday we will be examining some “enemies of contentment.” Don’t tell me you don’t have any because then you would be breaking one of the 10 commandments – lying!
If I asked you to name the number one enemy that robs you of peace and contentment what would it be? (if you would like you could send me a one sentence email naming the culprit)
Please read Philippians 4:1-13 in preparation for our time together this Sunday in God’s Word.
