    Be Rich – Side Effects

    1 Timothy 6:17-19; Proverbs 18:11

    Be Rich – Congratulations
    Series: Be Rich
    1 Timothy 6:17-19
     
    Paul gives an unusual command to Christians who are “rich in this present world,” that they should excel in the grace of generosity and service. We might suggest that this command is for someone else because we don’t feel all that rich. But, according to 99% of the rest of the world, we are rich. Even so, what is the opportunity for the Christian who is rich in this present world? Over the next few weeks, we’ll examine the remainder of Paul’s command to the rich among us.

    Halfway There – Others are There
    Ruth 1
     
    Naomi's halfway there point is heartbreaking. Her sons have died and all hopes for a family have vanished. She no longer wants to be called Naomi and chooses the name Mara, which means bitter. She felt like she was damaged goods but we see that in that moment Ruth was there with her and that Ruth was able to be extremely helpful.
     
    The uncanny friendship between Naomi and Ruth reminds us that God gives us vital community when we find ourselves halfway there. Friendships help us work through our hang ups, retrieve our life mission, and excel in the grace of celebration. Who in your life has met you “halfway there?”

    Halfway There – God is There
    Genesis 15
    Things rarely materialize as we think. We have gut-check moments and have to decide to abort or to go on. We are halfway there. If we can continue to go further, we can uncover more within us and in the faith life than we could have ever imagined.

    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
