Seeing the Basics: So often there ae too many things to try to see, figure out, and make decisions around, therefore we sometimes forget the most basic parts of life and faith. Jesus said if we love God and love neighbor most everything else will fall into line. We also see through our faith tradition that we can best do that if we focus on three simple rules for life, “do no harm, do good, and stay in love with God”

"Seeing How to Do No Harm" | Galatians 5:13-17

We all know that not harming one another should be a core conviction of a faithful life, but what we don’t always realize is that we can do harm with actions and with silence and inaction. Scripture tells us that doing harm usually comes from selfishness and a lack of seeing others as better than ourselves. Doing no harm and being selfless go hand and hand for people of faith.

"Seeing How to Do Good" | Galatians 6:1-10

It can be exhausting to carry the torch of justice and unconditional love in our world. When Jesus did it, the authorities of his day crucified him, because it is not always popular to do good to everyone. By definition doing good to all means someone will feel like they are not getting enough or what they feel they deserve. However, as followers of Christ, we are called to do good to all and not grow tired of doing that good work!

"Seeing How to Stay in Love With God" | John 15:1-8

Apart from God it is almost impossible to do no harm and to do all the good that we want to do in our world, but when we stay connected to God’s love and grace, all things are made possible. Staying connected to God through prayer, worship, scripture, and so many other ways allows us to live the faithful lives we are called to live. Join us as we strive to stay connected to our loving God and produces the fruits of discipleship.
