Jesus Is The Light of the World

John 8:12-20

Stub your toe, stumble over, break your wrist, and become even more scared than you already are.  You tend to hear sounds more and more because your body is desperate to understand where it is and where to go.  But, because you can't see the source of the sound, the mind makes educated guesses.  And, more often than not that guess will be determined by your current state of mind.  When we are scared, the default setting for any noise is something we are scared of.  Maybe this is just our imagination or maybe it is legitimate.

Jesus Is From Where We Should Go

A scene from "Jesus of Nazareth"
John 7:25-52

How are we able to "judge with righteous judgement"?  As several of my young friends said whenever we engaged in a playful insult match, "consider the source". 

One of the ways I can judge whether something is worth my money and attention is knowing where it is from.  A butterscotch pie from my late grandmother was always worth more than one from the supermarket.  A computer custom built at Navada in Perth has served me far better and longer than computers mass-assembled and placed on the shelves of Best Buy.
