Luke 7:11-17; 8:1-3, 19-21
Jesus saw the need of a widow burying her only son. Jesus and his disciples were partially financed by a small group of women. So why did such a perceptive and appreciative Jesus throw his own mother under the bus by leaving her outside the house

Levi (also called Matthew) did what he does best. He threw a party for Jesus. This party became the springboard for some radical teaching and radical behavior by Jesus. Why couldn’t he just be a good, Jewish boy and create no problems for no one? (bad grammar intended)

Why do some churches grow and seem blessed while others stagnate and seem cursed? Who is this Jesus who thrills, angers, and amazes? The people who are supposed to know him best didn’t know him at all. But his enemies did know him thoroughly.
Death is a huge giant in the road that Jesus overcame for all of us. Everyone has giant “Goliaths” that seem impossible to overcome and to reach our purpose in life. Oh, did I tell you that Goliath really didn’t stand a chance against David from a military perspective? David had superior weaponry and “principle of war” advantage. And, so do we in rising to our purpose in life.
