Close Encounters with Jesus, Vol. 2
Jesus encountered thousands during his 3 year ministry…and touched and changed lives and families forever. Join Pastor Doug this Fall as we examine how the Savior changed lives – and how He can change yours in this follow-up to Pastor’s 2013 series.

This week’s Title is “Jesus & The Conceited Mother.”  A recent study in The Journal of Personality and Social Psychology polled 1,700 American and Dutch parents and concluded that many modern mothers who are too proud “more likely give their children unusual names and lie about their achievements.” (Kanye West & Kim Kardashian named their daughter and son, Northwest and Saint, respectively; Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin named their daughter, Apple; Beyonce & Jay-Z named their daughter, Blue Ivy.) The study found that such parents were far more likely to heap lavish praise on their children and specifically agreed with the statements “my child deserves special treatment” and “my child is a great example for other children to follow.”
Well, James’ & John’s mother would’ve loved that survey… and if showy names were popular 2,000 years ago, she might have named James ‘Dark Night’ and John ‘Prince Thunder’!
Seriously, what we learn from the Bible today is great and needs to be APPLIED ASAP to our families, our churches, ourselves – young and old. (Let’s not wait for God to correct us…)
