The Upside-Down Way of Jesus

The Upside-Down Way of Jesus

Superiority and self-righteousness are difficult for human beings to recognize in themselves. Jesus attacks these issues harder than anything else because he knows the potential damage that can be done.

Jesus tells a story about the up-side-down nature of the kingdom of God, where the religious person who looks good on the outside is blind, unloving, and very, very far away from God; and the person who is despised by society has a humility that keeps him right at the heart of God’s life and love.

This Sunday we look at this story Jesus told to those who were confident of their own righteousness and looked down on everyone else.
