How do you define success? The gods of our age lure us to wealth, achievement, and power. Are these the rhythms of the Kingdom of God to which Jesus invites us to walk? This sermon looks at the calling of David and reminds us in 1 Samuel 16:7 that the the Lord does not look on the outward appearance, like mortals do. The Lord looks on the heart.
Be warned, this sermon looks closely at the middle class suburban compulsion to enroll our children in every possible activity and push the to “succeed” in life. The core question, in relation to the kingdom of God is this…why?
