If Jesus lived in your house, what do you think he would do?
The following re-enactment of Jesus most famous sermon gives us a clue.
Would he wash up?
If you have a lawn, would he mow the lawn?
Of course he would.
If you're a follower of Jesus, would you do those things with him?
Yes you would. You'd follow him around doing everything you could with him.
Following Jesus is easy when you think about it. We only have to think, "What would Jesus be doing if he was here in bodily form?" Then once you have the answer, join him in spirit by doing what you know he would do. (If you don't know anything about Jesus, you can find out all about him in the New Testament.)
The more someone loves, the greater they are. But to truly love the unlovely, we need God's help,
The following poem was written by a Scot in the 1800's at the height of the British Empires power; it's about true greatness. The father in the poem tells his son (Willie) that if he wants to be truly great, he will need God's help. He tells his son to "listen, and hear his voice." Willie has no idea how to do this so he asks his father. His fathers answer is simple, yet profound.
A note about the poem
Ambition to be something (e.g. a doctor) in order to help others is a good thing. The ambition he's talking about in the poem is the ambition to be better than others.
