Whether it’s school, sports, or religion, when we focus only on the rules, it can be difficult to remember the overall purpose of something. Jesus reminds us that when we focus so much on the letter of the law, we may forget why the law was written in the first place.
We’ve all had moments in our lives when we’ve asked ourselves the question: “What if?” What if I get this promotion? What if this relationship doesn’t work out? What if my kids succeed? What if they don’t?
These “what-if” questions can either fill you with fear or fuel your faith. When you experience challenging circumstances, what if God is in the midst of it all, working in and through your life in ways far greater than you can imagine?
