We live with a tension to be autonomous, to call our own shots, and a bent to give control of our lives to someone or something else. Truth is, we all serve some “functional king.” Maybe it’s your pets, your children, your career, your desire for other’s approval, etc. But these “functional kings” don’t give us life, they take it, they don’t set us free, they oppress us. That’s because we were made by and for the True King, and only under His hand can we become all he made us to be.
Scripture: Luke 19:28-44
