What if life was simpler? (Part 4)

What have we learnt about prayer over the years? Can it be as simple as Jesus makes out?

How do we handle the times when we ask, knock, seek but find that it all doesn’t work out as we thought it should?

What if life was simpler? (Part 3)

It’s hard being right all the time!

What if we could take the burden of judging others off our shoulders.
What if we believed that they don’t have to answer to us?
What if we practised grace a bit more?
Would that mean we would become gullible or lose discernment?

Can you be discerning and not judge?

What if life was simpler? (Part 2)

Is it possible to live a simpler life that is less worried about what we don’t have and more grateful for what we do have? Is it possible to worry less?

What if life was simpler? (Part 1)

Religious people have become experts at making spiritual practises complicated. They get twisted by our motives as well as the lengths we go to make ourselves look better than we are.

Jesus suggests some radical ways to make sure we keep those promises…

What if we reacted differently? (Part 3)

Wouldn’t life be simpler if we just said what we mean, and meant what we said?

Wouldn’t it mean that we could be trusted?

What if we reacted differently? (Part 2)

Israel knew that murder was wrong – but Jesus puts his finger on the contempt we can feel for one another when they don’t match up to our expectations.

Think of the outrage on social media at times.

He warns us of the consequences of those reactions, urges us to put things right with one another and uses an everyday example (making a last minute court settlement) to demonstrate how important our relationships are.

What if we reacted differently? (Part 1)

Jesus saw himself in the line of tradition of the law and prophets. He was calling his disciples to live righteously – in their everyday lives.

So did the Pharisees.

So how was Jesus different?
