Motives and Choices

中文:Chinese Version

In the early centuries of the church, John Chrysostom (349-407 AD) was a famous Christian leader and teacher. At one point, non-believers criticized Christian leaders as being hypocrites, grasping for power, prestige and wealth.

Chrysostom responded that the criticisms were justified, and Christians ought to admit it! And then ought to live as Christ taught:

“These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.” — Jesus

Coffee ThoughtCoffee/tea thought: Read Jesus’ words and ask yourself: Am I willing to actually _do_ what Jesus clearly taught? How would my thoughts and motivations change?

John
