Amazing Authority

©Millie McNabb

We often have some repair project going on. The summer we were married we helped my parents remodel their house after flood waters damaged the main floor. I remember our firstborn in her baby seat while we remodeled the bathroom in a Spokane house. In Maryland, we converted the garage into a work room.

When I’ve done wall texturing, I experimented with different techniques, until it looked right. I decided to google wall texturing to learn how to really do it. The first article I read said, “experiment until it looks right.”

Have you ever searched for help with something, only to be disappointed with the advice you got? The people Jesus encountered must have been disappointed with their past experience, for they certainly recognized the difference. Matthew 7:28-29 describes their reaction. “When Jesus had finished these words, the crowds were amazed at His teaching; for He was teaching them as {one} having authority, and not as their scribes.”

What teachings of Jesus have amazed you?

God bless….
