    Swiss Army Knife – Reconciliation
    Matthew 5:21-26
     
    (Reconciliation) will almost certainly involve climbing down from the high pedestal on which you have placed yourself, abandoning your position of superiority over the person you are angry with. But genuine humans don't live on pedestals; they have their feet on the ground, on a level with everybody else.
    - NT Wright

    Swiss Army Knife – Bible Study
    Matthew 7:24-27
     
    What narrative are you building your life on? Is this narrative going to sustain you? Or, does it have weaknesses? Do these weaknesses function as blind spots? The answer is "Yes, we all live by some narrative, whether we realize it or not," and that narrative is not always our own.
     
    "...he thought his mind was his own. Never his own until he makes it Christ's; up till then, merely a result of heredity, environment, and the state of his digestion. I became my own only when I gave myself to Another." - C.S. Lewis

    Swiss army Knife – Fasting
    Matthew 6:16-18
     
    Fasting provides that "low hum" of discomfort in our bodies, convincing us to keep deliberately working on our faith. There is a benefit to struggle in secret rather than struggling before the eyes of others. We find that in secret our ego evaporates and we are lead to deeper contentment.
     
    "The only purpose of such practices (as fasting) is to make disciples more willing and more joyous in following the designated path and doing the works required of them." - Dietrich Bonhoeffer

    Swiss Army Knife – Prayer
    Matthew 6:5-14
     
    Jesus gives is an alternative to the attention seeking public prayer of his time. Rather than pray to impress others he tells us to pray in secret where we can have our attention on God alone. Christs example to us, the Lord's Prayer, prompts us to pray with a template of Presence, Purity, Power, Provision, Pardon, Protection.
     
    "Prayer is one of life's great mysteries. Most people pray at least sometimes...At its lowest, prayer is shouting into a void on the off-chance there may be someone out there listening. At its highest, prayer merges into love, as the presence of God becomes so real that we pass beyond words and into a sense of His reality, generosity, delight and grace." - NT Wright

    Swiss Army Knife – Giving
    Matthew 6:1-4
     
    From the beginning, Christian give, not just to "keep the band together," but because giving was a part of who they were. Giving re-frames one's entire worldview about life that God hasn't formed a stingy world but one where you can give a significant portion away and never go without. If we give or choose not to...it reveals our God.
