Matthew 12:30-42 - Gods, Robots and Human Belief

The Pharisees ask for a sign. But they really don't. What they ask for is proof. And proof simply is not possible in the human experience - ever. You don't get proof. You get phenomena - and faith.

Matthew 12:33-37 - Sticks and Stones; Life or Death

A cautionary tale from Jesus, about watching "what we eat" so to speak. For what we eat, we metabolize into words, which carry the power and the opportunity at holiness, to acknowledge the human being before you, and to build her up, or tear her down.

Matthew 12:9-14 - Hard Hearts Don't Rest

Jesus calls us to rest from our afflictions and the power of evil by resting in his power and dominion but our hard hearts resist him. We can believe we need his help, and that we need his teachings, but we refuse to believe we need him to free us. Until we see Jesus as our savior king who delivers us we will never rest.

Jesus’ rebuke is a reminder that we don’t turn to God because of his power, we turn to God because of his kindness. And we can’t see his kindness until we see that we are truly unworthy of it.
