Pastor Daniel’s sermon on July 23, 2017 on Luke 20:45-21:4
“If you don’t believe you matter to God, you might try to prove your power, your place in this world. And you might trample on those who are supposedly below you in order to do so. Devour a few widows, so to speak. And if you can’t do all that, well then you might just despair. Figure that you really are a nobody.
But if instead you realize that you aren’t a nobody. If you realize that there is a God who sees you just as Jesus saw that widow. If you realize that this God sees a somebody, then you suddenly need not do all those other things. You can be courageous like one who walks into a room that no one else thinks you should enter. You can be generous, even when you feel you have little, because you know you mean a lot to God and no matter what comes you always will. You can be hopeful, that your poverty, your deficiency, your lacking – and we’ve all got them – you can be hopeful that even in your lacking you matter and you have something to give.”
