This parable shows us how we are to value people over money. If we can serve one another by the generous use of money, we should. On Pastor Krista’s last Sunday at MPLC, she thanks everyone for their generosity toward her these last 8 years.

Are you lost? When lost things are found, it's because of the searcher's diligence, not because the lost save themselves. So it is with God who continues to search for us every time we lose our way.

Luke 14:1, 7-14
When Jesus saw dinner guests jockeying for a prime spot at the table, he told them to humble themselves instead. When we step out of the struggle for pecking order, we can know instead the sweet joy of being welcomed and lifted up by a God of pure grace.
