A congregation came to Jesus and said, “Good teacher, what must we do to inherit eternal life?”
Jesus said, do the commandments. “Love and respect your neighbor. Have courage to do new things. Enter the world to support those in need. Gather as God’s family and honor everyone as human. Render to no one evil for evil, learn how to be more than nice. Pray and support those in need, and open yourselves to the community”
And the congregation said, “Lord we have striven to do all of this”
Jesus said, “Then there is one more thing, give away your worship space to be a place of sanctuary for the rest of the community”
And the congregation went away grieving, for their sanctuary was a very beautiful and well cared for space.
Then Jesus said “Trust the Lord with all your heart, all your soul and all your mind, and remember you security is not in possessions or ownership of space and time, but is in God.”
