Good Morning February 20

Jesus always does things backwards! He talked to the Pharisees, respected scholars of their day, and called them hypocrites and empty tombs. He said if you want to be a leader, you need to be the servant of all. To be first you have to be last. He just didn’t get it. He didn’t understand about power and prominence in this world. Or maybe He did. Maybe He really saw how hollow and superficial all the things we hold up as goals to strive for really are. Maybe that is why He spent His time with the tax collectors and sinners. There was no pretense win them. They knew they were weak and needed His help. And they received it. The ones who come to Him empty are sure to be filled with His living water.
