Is your focus on and study of your culture out of balance compared to your study of God in His word?
Each of us must understand our context. Indeed, applying the Bible to life means understanding our context.
But across many time zones, it seems we’re so focused on the problems in our cultures, that the solution is difficult to see. It would appear that too many leaders (yes, you’re a leader) have allowed the study of their particular culture to outweigh their study of God.
Take a long refreshing drink of God’s word friend. Then you’ll see that culture through the eyes of Jesus.
“But the Lord answered her, ‘Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things, but one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her.’” (Luke 10:41-42 ESV)
