At one point in history, people didn’t know about – or believe in germs because they were invisible to the naked eye! Because of this, people put themselves in all kinds of vulnerable situations – and died when they didn’t have to. Germs, like evil, were an invisible deadly force – capable of stealing, killing and destroying what we love and treasure. We’d like to think we can just do whatever we want, intuit our own way to happiness – and live in ways that Jesus tells us are destructive and thrive. It’s a lie! What we invite into our lives in the form of tiny, cute, pretty little seedlings doesn’t stay small. It develops a massive, hairy, ugly root system to feed itself and take more ground. Jesus warns that ignoring this stuff will drag us further and further from the happiness we most want.
