By embracing the way of the cross, we welcome the Kingdom of God.
Through giving ourselves to the Lord, we can find ourselves doing great things with the Spirit’s help.
It’s not riches in themselves that are bad; it’s how they’re used.
The Kingdom calls us to be just stewards, wary of being distracted by wealth and the need to acquire it.
In making judgments about others we miss our own need to celebrate God’s unlimited mercy and forgiveness.
Jesus will embrace his cross completely, giving his all. We, his followers, must do the same.
