Living Beyond the Obvious

The obvious is not always the right solution. There are times when God will go in the opposite direction from what is assumed to reveal His heart in the most unimagined ways. Jesus did this in His life.                                               

When the religious establishment attempted to destroy a sinner, Jesus extended mercy, gave wise counsel and sent them on their way to encounter a new life. When people tried to trick Him with questions sourced in the obvious, He stepped over their trap and revealed true wisdom.                 

Living and responding from the obvious is limited in its ability to bring real change. It does not allow for creativity in our faith as we explore the depths of God’s wisdom and mercy. Choose to not respond to the issues of life from an obvious bias, and you will be used by God in surprising ways.
