Good morning all,
The word of the day is “rufescent.” Have you ever been embarrassed in a situation? I know that is kind of a rhetorical question. Of course, we all have. Well, one of the reoccurring themes in the New Testament is the Pharisees trying to catch Jesus in a lie, or worse yet, something to condemn himself in front of all of his followers. We all know that he is God, but what comes along with that sometimes is a lack of spiritual understanding, as we are all in need of growth.
Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” When the young man heard this, he went away sad, because he had great wealth. ~Matt 19:21-22
My question is: what the things that are most important to you? I know that sometimes we put stuff in front of our spiritual growth. My prayer is that each of you takes moment to evaluate all of the important items of your life, and make sure that God is a part of those growth areas. Each of you has a ton of blessings from the Lord, we just need to capitalize on all of the stuff that God puts in front of us. That way we will never have a sheepish and rufescent, or reddish, shade of embarrassment on our faces.
Praying for you,
