When using twitter, the hashtag # is a means to summarize one's tweet. In other words, if I am going to tweet about a great dinner I just ate, I might tag the message like this: #dinnerwinner. Or, if I want to tweet about Oklahoma State's HUGE loss last night, I might tag the message like this: #okstatebballfail. So, the title of this blog post should be self explanatory. We've done a lousy job keeping it updated. We're trying to get better at regular posts.

Regardless, we've just come through a section in Luke that has a large number of parables. I'm interested to find out what your favorite parable is. What story of Jesus resonates with you? And what parables confuse you?

Your turn. Don't make me tweet this: #responsefail.

  1. Matt: In a word, what trips me up is humility. This is the complete opposite of the fallen nature of mankind. We lift ourselves up so that we may progress ahead of our "competition". In Luke 14 (CEV): 10 When you are invited to be a guest, go and sit in the worst place. Then the one who invited you may come and say, “My friend, take a better seat!” You will then be honored in front of all the other guests. 11 If you put yourself above others, you will be put down. But if you humble yourself, you will be honored. What more encouragement to humble oneself is necessary? The story of Jesus is servant leadership. Sacrificial love. Lowering Himself to demonstrate to those he taught that the meek would inherit the earth. Glorious!
