Are You a Pharisee or a Prophet?

Challenged by this quote from Mark Batterson in his book All In:

Pharisees treat people based on past performance. Prophets treat people based on future potential. 

Pharisees give people something to live down too. Prophets give people something to live up to. 

Pharisees write people off. Prophets right people in. 

Pharisees see sin. Prophets see the image of God. 

Pharisees give up on people. Prophets give them a second chance.

We’re A Long Way Off

I have been listening to this song for over a year now and contemplating it very regularly. It is my favorite song from Gungor’s album I am Mountain. For me it is such a call to humility and grace. May it encourage, challenge, and bless you as well.
