Rich Mullin once told an audience at Wheaton College; Jesus once told a man you must be born again and we’ve made a big deal out of it ever since. Jesus also once told a man to sell everything and give it to the poor but that doesn’t get much attention at all.

“Jesus was always talking about a reverse economy. He talked about how if you want to receive, you give. If you want to lead, you follow. That the poor are rich and you only really live for certain things if you are willing to die to them.” – Bob Goff, Love Does

God’s way is backwards from so much of what we see. His way is rooted in trust. Our way is rooted in doubt.
