My wife and I love watching HGTV and the home remodel shows. In one of our favorites, this couple talks about how they really enjoy finding the house that no one wants and turning it into a house that EVERYONE wants. They judge a potential house on something very different than most, and it definitely is not the immediate eye appeal. It's amazing to see how value is redefined as a result of their effort.
For the past several weeks, we have been hearing and studying Jesus's words as He attempts to redefine what we value by Kingdom standards; a redefinition of value through the eyes of the only One capable of judging what is truly valuable.
This could likely be the most important parable for us in all of scripture. Join me Sunday, and plan to be involved in smaller community this week as we dig in together.
