"RESPONDING TO EVIL"
Rev. Lon Lorton
January 12, 2020
Matthew 13:24-30; 36-43
The mystery of evil (lots of questions)
- Why doesn't God do something about it?
Jesus' so-called answer to evil
- In the end, evil will be dealt with.
- In the meantime, figure out how to act.
Our response to evil should imitate that of Jesus.
- Listen to Him.
- Act like Him.
- Love them as He does.
Take a leap of faith.
- Greet the lonely.
- Make a difference in your community.
- Resist evil.
- Step up in times of crisis.
- Choose names that are "sweeter".
- Find someone in each situation who you can "love like Jesus."
