Lent Bible Challenge | Day 36
April 6
Luke 18:1-17

I hear these parables saying that what we say and do matters. It's often that I feel un-noticed, un-important. Who am I in the larger scheme of things? Yet Jesus teaches that we all are important, not in a Song-of-Music la-de-da kind of over the top proletariat-empowering nice-way of affirming the common human being, rather it's a radical affirmation that our lives matter, that our actions are important, that our words are paramount. Do we live that way? I know I don't. What would we live like if we consider our every-day, mundane (even repetitive) actions as life-changing, universe-transforming and other-sustaining?
