Matthew 7:13-14

Song: Different (by Micah Tyler)

 Back when I was a child attending Sunday School, our teacher showed us a picture of the narrow path and the broad way. Interestingly, I would have chosen the narrow path up the mountain.

Scripture Reading: Mark 9:38-50


Mother's Day Resources

Note how Jesus counters the disciples’ Us vs. Them language. The disciples said: we stopped him cause he was not one of us. There it is, the us vs. them concept that is the cause for racism, sexism, heterosexism, unhealthy nationalism and racial / ethnic supremacy attitudes.

If they are caught in the company of such people, they will go back to jail. Parole officers know from experience that if a parole surrounds him or herself with bad people, he or she is prone to getting in trouble with the law all over again.
