4.3 Fill My Cup, Lord

04_2Read Matthew chapter 15.  In this chapter we see Jesus “turning the tables” on accepted beliefs and values.  Jesus rejects society’s values regarding what is clean and unclean, valuable and expendable.  Jesus teaches us that the external things do not matter: race, status,  nationality.  Those folks that “respectable” people might look down on are loved and valued by God, even if they are labeled “unclean” or “unworthy”.  It is what comes out of our heart that makes us unclean.  When we meet up with someone rejected as of no worth by our society, what comes out of
your heart?
