Luke 10:38-42

Which is more important – in growing a garden – sunshine or rain? Which is more important in applying for a job – your resume or your answers in the interview? Which is more important when preparing to play a sport – practice or nutrition? Or in raising a child – compassion or discipline? Or in considering a car to buy – The way it looks or the way it works? Which is more important in the Christian life? – Sitting at Jesus’ feet and listening to his teaching or serving and loving others?

Which is more important:
In growing a garden – sunshine or rain – BOTH.
In applying for a job – resume or answers – BOTH.
In playing a sport – practice or nutrition – BOTH.
Raising a child – compassion or discipline – BOTH.
Buying a car – its looks or its engine – BOTH.

The Christian life – Sitting at Jesus’ feet or serving and loving others – Sitting at Jesus’ feet and listening to his teaching. What? Aren’t both equally important? Aren’t we called to both Love God and Love People? It doesn’t do refugees or orphans or impoverished people much good to know Christians in St. Albert are reading their Bibles. We’ve got to get out there and help people. Yes.
