Synopsis

It is a good idea for churches and mission agencies to define their 'values', but are we aware of the standards set by Jesus for the Kingdom of God?  Here is a set of values analysed from a read through of St Matthew's Gospel.  How are we doing?

  1. We are to give Jesus Christ absolute priority
  2. We are to seek the approval of God rather than other people
  3. We are to be vulnerable with each other
  4. We are to be clearly different in our behaviour
  5. We are to be radically different in our attitudes
