"God in Unexpected Places" We expect to find God in the usual places – church, in prayer or in nature. However, God has a habit of showing up at the grocery store, on the freeway, or at work. Jacob is on the run as he stole his elder brother’s blessing from their father. Yet, God chooses generosity instead of condemnation. The sower is no different. He will not pull out the weeds endangering the wheat. Where / When have you found God in your life? When have you needed God’s generosity in your life?

"Karma and the Kingdom of God" Some people are quick to call on “karma” when someone does them wrong. However, when we are the ones who are guilty, we look to God’s grace and mercy. The Kingdom of God is so treasured that people sell all they own to obtain it. The Kingdom of God is so powerful, that it cannot be contained. God’s grace and mercy are key to the Kingdom of Heaven and “karma” doesn’t fit in God’s plan. Name a time when you needed to forgive someone. Name a time when you needed forgiveness. Which was harder for you?
