Spiritual Life Coaching – More Outcasts

New Testament 3 Production Still PhotographySpiritual Life Coaching – More Outcasts

There is no question that Jesus reached out to and embraced what society would consider outcasts or marginalized. Jesus gave three sermons that reflect his feelings on this. First, there was the sermon of the lost sheep where Jesus leaves the ones in the sheepfold and goes searching for the lost one. (Luke 15:4). Second, there is the story of the lost coin. The woman who loses it sweeps the house looking for the coin and when she finds it spends ten times the value of the coin (my addition) to throw a party to celebrate finding it. (Luke 15:8) Third, there is the story of the lost son who squanders his father’s inheritance, falls into deep despair once all his resources are gone, and intends to offer himself as a servant in his father’s house upon his return. The father “runs” to meet him, (a very uncustomary approach for an elder) embraces him, and over the protests of the other brother throws a lavish party for the one who was lost but now is found.

Who does Jesus care about when it comes to faith? He wants his followers to take care of each other but even more he wants them to embrace and reach out to the folks who feel cut off, on the margins, and who have doubts. The “self righteous” ones cause Jesus to be irritated and impatient. Don’t ever feel you are too far from the love of God, too unimportant, or too filled with doubts and questions. God’s loves, as demonstrated with Jesus, breaks down these barriers.

Be Well…
