Wisdom from above is . . . full of mercy and good fruits
Christians say that Jesus is "the Christ," the Messiah, the anointed one. Who are you? When God saves you, heals you, what will you be called? What would happen asked asked yourself, "What Are You Becoming This Year?" and then focused on letting God do that for you?

Privilege. Control. Certitude. Individual Rights. Are these the values of the Reign of God? Will God's promised future bring more and more of all that?
