Wisdom from above is . . . full of mercy and good fruits
Most of us of a certain age have been evaluated at work on a numerical scale that ranged from 1 - "Below Expectations" - to, say, 14, "Exceeds Expectations." Jesus had earned a "1" from the priests, Pilate, and even his disciples. Jesus' Resurrection did not change the evaluation, it tore up the notion that God has any interest in meeting our expectations at all. Indeed, the Reign of God blows our expectations out of the water. Read the sermon here, or listen to it here.
