Jesus Asked – Why Are You Thinking These Things In Your Hearts?

I know it’s Memorial Day Weekend, but I would like to get us thinking right off the bat here today.  What do you think influences your life the most?  What do you think is directing your life and impacting your life experiences more than anything else?  Now, we are in church, so we may say God, and yeah, that is a good answer.  Some might say it’s my family and loved ones.  Some might say their job or . . .

This is something that I don’t think too many of us people…and even us Christians who believe Christ lives in us can see or accept about ourselves.
