Too often, Americans will read a Bible story and “insert” themselves into the story. For instance, when we read the famous story about David and Goliath, we imagine ourselves as David, slaying the “giants” in our lives. But when we twist a Bible story into a personal story, we actually rob the story of having greater power in our lives.
This week, Pastor Erin Bird walks us through Mark 2:1-12, showing us that to insert ourselves into the story as the outcast leper cheats us of seeing something better. And what is better? Listen in to find out.
