Breaking the Pattern

We don’t like the times like these, because it’s a break in our PATTERN and it calls our pattern into question.

Mark 10:17-22

HE WANTED AN ENCOUNTER – To say he’d met Jesus.

HE WANTED AFFIRMATION – That his normal was good enough.


If we aren’t careful, we’ll end up there too—seeking our time with Jesus, just to make us feel better about ourselves, with no desire to make a real change, and no concern for the way we could be used to serve others.

How can we find a better pattern for ourselves?

Romans 12:2

3 Questions.

  1. How can you create pauses to call your pattern into question?
  2. How can you give more generously?
  3. How can you live more generously?

Matthew 11: 28-29
