Correction with Honour

  |  0 Comments

Honour is also the practice of calling out the best in one another. This can be expressed both in words of praise – “You are amazing!” and in words of connection – “Hey, you are way too awesome to be acting like that! Remember who you are and stop it!”

Matt 21:12-16 Take a moment

  |  0 Comments

Matt 21:12-16 Take a moment to observe the beautiful progression in these verses. First, Jesus cleansed the temple, causing it to become a house of putity (v12). Then he pronounced that it would be called a house of prayer (v13). Next teh Temple was transformed into a house of power as the blind and lame came to him and he healed them there (v14). And finally the temple became a house of perfected praise (v16).
