Why is following your heart a terrible idea? Well, think of all the ways we describe our hearts–they can be cold, warm, tender, whole, broken, and a million conditions in between.

So why would you consult something so fickle with life’s major decisions?

Fortunately, the words of Jesus offer some other questions you can ask whenever your heart is leading you somewhere. Check it out here!

Fortunately, what the greatest teacher in the world says is greatest response to inequality is well within reach.

You want to be informed, but the information is overwhelming.

Sure, there’s good news, but only after you scroll past or listen through the onslaught of pandemics, protests and politics.

So you’re left with a few choices when you have news fatigue–you could avoid the news altogether, but that comes at the expense of ignorance. You could cherry-pick where you get your news, but that comes at the risk of misinformation. You could keep logging onto or turning on the news, but that comes at the high price of personal well-being.

Fortunately, there’s another choice when you feel information overload and news fatigue, and it’s a lesson we find when Jesus was fighting news fatigue.

Feeling out–of–balance lately?

The Coronavirus has obliterated the idea of work–life balance. If you’re like the average person, you’re working 3 more hours a day because your day is so unproductive. While you’re on a work Zoom meeting, the dog needs to go outside, the kids need a referee, and dinner should’ve started 30 minutes ago. It’s laughable to think of waking up early to fill out the daily planner you bought in January, isn’t it?

But while you and I chase after work–life balance, Jesus has a few ideas on the topic that might help you find the balance you want.

Ever wish you could control your emotions instead of your emotions controlling you?

When an outburst of anger or greed or sadness kick in, is there really any way to actually control those emotions, or are you helpless to what you feel? And if you could control our emotions, is it a matter of mental willpower, or something else?

Fortunately, Jesus cuts through all of these questions and teaches by example how you can control your emotions, instead of letting your emotions control you.

The problem with saying you should follow Jesus because he’ll make your life better is what happens when life isn’t better.

And the problem with saying you should follow Jesus because of his example is that life is full of people who do exemplary things.

Or saying you should follow Jesus because he died for you, when history is full of courageous people who did just that.

But when the reason people in the first century followed Jesus becomes YOUR reason for following Jesus? That’s where you find a truly transformed life.

[gentle music]
(Shutting of car door.)
– I believe the teachings
of Jesus improve my life,
my relationships and make me happier.
But, that’s not why I follow Jesus.
And I believe the example of Jesus
makes me a better person.
The way he cared for the
outcast and the marginalized,
women and children, people of
a different race than his own.
But that’s not why I follow Jesus.
I even believe that Jesus died a horrible
and courageous death,
and that he died on a cross for my sins.
But, that’s not why I follow Jesus.
So why do I follow him?
It’s for one simple reason:
I believe Jesus rose from the dead.
I believe what billions of followers
Jesus through history believe–
that Jesus actually physically
rose from the grave.
And that when he did, he conquered death,
he changed history and
he changed their lives.
And if you’re ever going to follow Jesus,
I know you have so many questions,
but my encouragement to you
is to answer the one question
that stands above them all:
“Did Jesus rise from the dead?”
Because however you answer that question,
it changes the way you live, what you value
and it changes the way
you answer every question
to follow.
[gentle music]

Chances are, you’ve never tried to do what Jesus says to do about worry.

Worry doesn’t just steal our happiness. Like falling dominoes, worry robs our health, our diet, our blood pressure, our relationships, and more.

So it shouldn’t surprise us that Jesus, who says he came to GIVE us a full life, would like to stop worry and anxiety from robbing us of that life.

But his teaching is so subtle, so fast, it’s rarely practiced. Let’s see what happens when you give it a try.

where Jesus wants to teach you about
worry only takes about a minute hey my
name is Chris Paulo and welcome to what
Jesus says about where Jesus speaks for
himself so you can respond for yourself
and don’t forget to hit like and
subscribe so you can stay up to date on
what Jesus says about topics important
to you topics like what Jesus says about
worry and I don’t know what’s causing
you to worry right now maybe it’s a loss
of something or to fear something that
you feel threatened whatever it is
there’s this one time where Jesus is
teaching a particularly anxious group of
people and he tells them do not worry
look at the birds they neither sow or
reap or store in barns and yet your
heavenly Father feeds them and on the
surface we’re like okay that’s nice
Jesus look at the birds okay what else
you got but this is actually one of
those teachings that I think people know
but actually don’t practice because in
one of the biographies of Jesus written
by a man named Luke the word for look
that he uses there is consider or wave
or gaze upon until something is
discovered weird that you and I would
use for that as meditate so here’s what
I’d like to do right now I’d actually
like to practice this teaching of Jesus
and so whatever you’re feeling right now
whatever you’re doing right now let’s
just press pause on all of it and we’re
gonna put up a live cam of birds right
now who are doing their bird thing and
and we’re gonna see what we discover
when we do what Jesus suggests and
consider the birds it’s just one minute
you can do this you ready here we go
[Music]
yes so what did you discover for me
personally there is something about
their carefree nature and there’s
something about like just the way they
went about their business but but now
that we’ve considered the birds
Jesus has three follow-up questions that
he asks ready so the first question he
asks is kind of rhetorical he says are
you not more valuable than the birds and
he’s not saying the birds aren’t
valuable he’s just saying that on the
sliding scale of life there’s birds but
you are more valuable than birds to your
heavenly Father and then the second
question he asks is can any of you by
worrying add a single hour to your life
worry subtracts our energy it subtracts
our attention it subtracts from our
happiness you get exercise to extend
your life you can eat healthy to extend
your life but worry will not extend your
life and then we get to our third
question and this one’s not rhetorical
this one’s actually for reflection and
he says since you cannot do this very
little thing why do you worry about the
rest and here Jesus is being kind of
blunt he’s bringing us to a recognition
of what we can and can’t control and
when we’re faced with that uncertainty
of what we can’t control we have two
choices either worry or trust and so I’d
love to hear your answer in your
comments below why do you worry about
the rest gonna take a little bit of
honesty but I really I think we’ll all
benefit from this discussion so I look
forward to hearing what you have to say
we’ll see you soon

Somehow, it’s fitting that we’re spending Easter indoors.

Social isolation and social distancing during the Coronavirus has changed the way we live. Businesses, schools and even churches have turned online because of COVID-19 stay-at-home orders and quarantine efforts.

But when we celebrate Easter at home, we suddenly have a new perspective to consider the importance of the resurrection of Jesus.
