What Did Jesus Value Most?
“And Jesus not only taught us how to pray, but He showed us how to pray. Never once did He place priority value on anything that would put distance between Him and His Father. Of course He wanted a good meal after His forty-day fast, but not if it would distance Him one inch from His Father. And if using His resources to protect Himself kept His Father’s kingdom from being displayed, He didn’t use them.”
Dr. Larry Crabb, The PAPA Prayer, Page 48
Questions for Reflection:
• Take some time to read through the Gospels over the next week, considering the ways that Jesus, by His choices, not just by His words, revealed what it looked like for oneness with His Father to be His greatest treasure.
• What do your choices reveal about what you most value?
• Is there any change that the Holy Spirit is inviting you to make right now, in order to deepen your intimacy with your heavenly Father?
