It’s tempting for us to believe that profound messages come in larger packages. For example, if a fifteen-minute sermon is profound, then surely a twenty-minute sermon will be even better, right? Yet Jesus’ sermons were often very brief. He knew how to get the point across through short lessons, often relayed in the form of parables.
In the present North American context, where attention spans are brief and time is viewed as a commodity, communicating succinctly is essential if we wish for our message to be heard. Today, I wish to share with you several short lessons in faith.
May God’s blessing be with you this day as you seek to live into the calling placed upon our lives,
