Flexible heart vs. Inflexible ritual


God cares about the people and not the structure. When church has become “inflexible ritual” because it cannot be moved; then what He cares is a heart that can be transformed. We are stuck if we belong to a faith community not willing to change. We should be “living organisms” changing constantly, in the wisdom of Tenderness, always praying, “Lord change this heart of stone into a heart of flesh so I can become a flexible heart” Matthew 12:6-8 says, “There is far more at stake here than religion. If you had any idea what this Scripture meant—’I prefer a flexible heart to an inflexible ritual’—you wouldn’t be nitpicking like this. The Son of Man is no lackey to the Sabbath; he’s in charge.”

Let our prayer always be, “Lord make me flexible”
