I often think about correlations between Jesus’ day and our day.  I see so many similarities that it seems we could just substitute a modern day life into that ancient life and unless we blew it on the costume nobody would ever know.  Although our society is much more advanced, our thinking is not. 

In case you missed that one I’ll say it again:

Although our society is much more advanced, our thinking is not. 

Many of us are like those in Judea about the time Jesus would be born who may have been in expectation of a King, but they had in mind a physically powerful king?  And because there didn’t seem to be much in the works as far as a kingdom takeover was concerned, they simply looked ahead sacrificing today at the altar of tomorrow.

Think we don’t do that?  Think again.

Peace

Jim
