Jesus said to the crowds: “To what shall I compare this generation?

How has the thinking of my generation influenced how I live as a follower of Jesus today?

We are cultural Christians. We can’t help it. We are born into a specific time with norms and values that govern how we think and act. However, the message of the gospels is counter-cultural, stretching us beyond the limts of our generational constraints. It takes intention and integrity to live the way of love as Jesus commanded. It is much easier just to go along with the crowd and domesticate Jesus so that we don’t have to change.  As I meditate on this message today, may I think clearly and act decisively.
