Deserve Ain’t Got Nothing to Do With It

Matthew 20:1-16

First Congregational Church of Anchorage  :  24 September 2017

After I began my job as the General Manager of Cinnamon’s Deli, the restaurant I used to operate, I called my grandpa. He had been the office manager for a factory that makes wallboard for construction in the same town I grew up in. He was an accountant and ran the office, but retired the same year I was born.

Look at Me!

Psalm 119:33-40 (CEB)

First Congregational Church of Anchorage  :  10 September 2017

1- Lord, teach me what your statutes are about,

and I will guard every part of them.

2- Help me understand so I can guard your Instruction

and keep it with all my heart.

3- Lead me on the trail of your commandments

because that is what I want.

4- Turn my heart to your laws,

not to greedy gain.

4- Turn my eyes away from looking at worthless things.

Make me live by your way.

3- Confirm your promise to your servant—

the promise that is for all those who honor you.

2- Remove the insults that I dread

because your rules are good.

1- Look how I desire your precepts!

Make me live by your righteousness.

Following and Complaining

Jeremiah 15:15-21; Matthew 16:21-28

First Congregational Church of Anchorage  :  03 September 2017
