God often asks us to do things that are UNSAFE and UNCOMFORTABLE. Don't believe me? You can probably open to any page of the New Testament and read it for yourself. Yet, somehow, many of us settle into and justify our safe, comfortable lives while still claiming Christ as Lord.
This week, Francis again challenged us to consider these issues anew. What if we were reading the Bible for the first time in our lives? Would we still have the same political views? Would we continue to spend our time, money and talents as we do now? If the Bible is true, are we living like we believe that?
None of these questions have easy answers for the typical American Christian. I hope, however, that fact will not stop us from asking these questions and at least considering some of the difficult conclusions we may be forced to make.
