Jesus: “I’m not interested”
Luke 12: 13-15 “Someone in the crowd said to him, ‘Teacher, tell my brother to divide the inheritance with me.’ Jesus replied, ‘Man, who appointed me a judge or an arbiter between you?’ Then he said to them, ‘Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.”
I wonder if you have ever heard Jesus say this to you, “I’m not interested”?
I am sure not! I mean Jesus is bothered about us yes?
What concerns us concerns him.
What upsets us upsets him.
What makes us angry makes him angry.
What we want he wants.
That’s right isn’t it?
Or maybe …
What I think is important actually isn’t.
What I am attracted to is a distraction.
“ … my … me” prayers hide God from our lives.
Who I am is more important than what I have.
Let us make sure our prayers are more about Him and others than me and mine.
Let’s keep Jesus interested.
