Am I being stupid or willfully stupid?
Jesus asks some stunning questions. We don’t exactly know how to respond. Some days, there aren’t great answers. Jesus is waiting to hear what we think and say. His questions deserve an answer.
Jesus explains so many things to us. He challenges us to hear, really hear, what He is saying.
Jesus is blunt. He is straightforward. He really want us “to get it”. He has given us the Holy Spirit to help.
God’s goal for us is that we focus on our heart. It is all about our heart. That is the main thing.
May we listen and understand. It is important.
Jesus said, “Are you being willfully stupid? Don’t you see that what you swallow can’t contaminate you? It doesn’t enter your heart but your stomach, works its way through the intestines, and is finally flushed.” (That took care of dietary quibbling; Jesus was saying that all foods are fit to eat.)

Our programs are like an immersion into a new language – the language of living in Jesus. The goal is fluency in the language of relationships. Programs share a sequential vision, building an understanding of relationships and family culture. The foundation is an encounter with Jesus. This encounter is the means for both insight and vision. Encountering Jesus leads a radical change in living and relationships.
