Lent Bible Challenge | Day 15
Luke 6:43-7:10
March 13

These two teachings seem to be expressed in the concrete story of the encounter of Jesus and the Centurion. What does faith look like? We put our faith in a lot of things: God, our salaries, our home value, family, meaning made at work or through work, 401ks, friends, relationships, things we own, things we'd like to own, legacies, actions, memories.....ourselves. Maybe the centurion (who wasn't a Jew, but rather a foreign Roman occupier - big time political no-no) had such remarkable faith - not because of the quantity or even the quality - but rather because he was clear and coherent in terms of what he put his faith in and how he lived?
