The Big Picture

Carol Sue Hutchinson

Luke 6:6-11

It is easy to be like the Pharisees and major in the minors. You get so involved in the smaller issues that have nothing to do with making disciples for Jesus Christ. The Pharisees were focused on keeping the rules and making sure other people did the same. They had completely forgotten God’s purpose.

Jesus came to show people how to love God and each other. Jesus taught people to repent (which means turn around) and stop focusing on the things that do not help us to love God and to help others learn about Jesus and loving others.

It seems easier to concentrate on the rules rather than learning how to love and serve others. It is more difficult to spend time and study on building relationships with others that will strengthen our relationships with God and others. We are called to be part of the big picture. The rules can help us be all that God calls us to be but they are not the whole answer. We need to keep our focus on Jesus and why He came to earth. Our task is to make disciples for Jesus Christ. This happens in the way that we live, treat others, care for those in need and respect others.

Prayer: Jesus keep our feet on your path as we learn to help others to learn and grow in your love and grace. Amen.
