“If you are not being persecuted (criticized/challenged), check your light!”

    Mrs. Willie Mae Cornelius (Big Mama)

“Let your light shine before (all) in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your

Father who is in heaven.”

  Jesus, Matthew 5.16 (NAS)

 The journey to Easter is filled with examining the life of Jesus and the various encounters He made along the way.  In His Galilean ministry, we see Jesus interacting with various groups of people, typically marginalized, impoverished, hard-working, faithfully devout to Judaism, and deeply concerned about the abusive imperialistic behavior of Rome and the seemingly complicit attitude of the leadership anchored in Jerusalem.

 Jesus walked a difficult road but did not bend from what He knew to be the truth of God’s desire that people love Him with all they possess (heart, soul, strength, and mind – Luke 10.27) and that they love each other.
