Jesus had some bad habits.
I’m sure he didn’t brush his teeth everyday. And he was pretty bad at giving people direct answers to their questions. He was known to have bad table manners when he went to the temple…
…And Jesus was friends with all the wrong people.
Of course, you already know that. You know that Jesus hung out with prostitutes and tax collectors and all sorts of other seedy characters. They were the “wrong” people to be hanging out with. We romanticize this idea – how welcoming and kind Jesus was to everyone to all the outcasts…
…And then we make sure we do the opposite.
Since my post last week sparked a lot of good discussion, I’ve been thinking a lot about who are the “wrong” people for us to hang out with, the “wrong” sins to forgive.
The conclusion I came to surprised me.
