Overrated

“We all love justice until there is a cost to us. But we need to know there is always a cost to justice. There is a cost to discipleship, there is a cost to following Jesus.”

A confession I could well relate to.
Let’s not just fall in love with the idea of changing the world.

“This is my confession. It’s painful and honest, but it’s mine. And it’s this: I am more in love with the idea of changing the world than actually changing the world.

I like to talk about changing the world.
I don’t really like to actually do what it takes.

This isn’t a message of guilt or shame. It’s not about making you feel bad for not doing enough. But it is a call—to both you and me—to be less infatuated with telling a good story and instead live the good story—a story of faith, hope, courage, and justice.”
