What we focus on, what we care about, is what we see. There are things in our lives we need to stop caring about. Because what we care about determines the course of our lives. It determines what we see and don’t see. It determines whether we walk toward death or life.
Our culture is dying because it cares about all the wrong things. Our churches are dying because we have cared about the wrong things. Therefore, Jesus, teach us to care … and not to care.
