Matthew 13:53-58 | In part 2 of “The Curse of Success,” Dr. Crawford Loritts takes us to the scriptural warnings about the nature of jealousy and how to use God’s power to defeat it.
Matthew 13:53-58 | After teaching his disciples the parables, Jesus returned to his hometown to teach in the synagogue. But Jesus noticed something troublesome rising up within his own community, and it was aimed at him. It was jealousy. Crawford explains why the residents were jealous of Jesus and how we can guard against it in our own lives.
Matthew 13:44-46 | In “Priceless,” Part 2, Crawford Loritts contrasts the Parable of the Hidden Treasure and the Parable of the Pearl of Great Value. What we learn is that Jesus is to be treasured. He deserves our full devotion. He’s the Treasure found and the Treasure sought.
Matthew 13:44-46 | Crawford Loritts explains “The Parable of the Hidden Treasure” and “The Parable of the Pearl of Great Value.” He says the main thing to remember about these two short parables is that they are really about the inestimable value of God’s kingdom and doing whatever it takes to enter it. You cannot put a price tag on God’s kingdom.
