Don’t Bury What God Gives

September 13, 2020

by Pastor Joel Plisek

Scripture Reading: Matthew 25:14-30
 

Growing up I had this dog named Misty, we learned not to leave things around the house.  Why?  Because she would eat them?  No!  Misty’s problem was that she would bury what she found outside in the back yard.  There was one time I could honestly say to my teacher that my dog took my homework.

This letter is probably the only one that Paul wrote to a community he had never visited before. Paul did not plant the Church in Rome. Among the other reasons for writing this letter Paul is addressing the issue of love among the brethren in Rome. The teaching about love for each other is important for Paul as he prepares this congregation to host him on his mission trip to Spain (Romans 15:23-24). This teaching is also important to us today as we pursue our mission to be the hands of Jesus Christ.

In today’s scripture lesson, Paul speaks strongly on the topic of love saying:
