Some Thoughts on the Book “What’s the Least I Can Believe and Still Be a Christian?” (Post #16): Chapter 15- “Jesus’ Example”

03 Mar

We are in chapter 15 of Martin Thielen’s book What’s the Least I Can Believe and Still Be a Christian? this morning. The question he is seeking to answer is What Brings Fulfillment?

Thielen gives several examples of those who learned that true contentment comes from serving others. He talks about the founder of Habitat for Humanity who made millions but was unhappy until he began to care for others, especially those needing low-income housing.

Jesus’ example of washing His disciples’ feet shows us that serving others is a key ingredient of a rewarding life.

MY RESPONSE:  Boy, do I disagree with Thielen in this chapter! Wow! Serving others? Is he kidding? Actually there is nothing in this chapter that raises my theological hackles [I don’t even know what “hackles” are or what causes them to “rise”].

Of course we should be servants like the Lord Jesus. So . . . look for someone to serve today! [I’ll do the same and try to give a brief report in our next post on Thielen’s book].

    You almost had me there- in the second before I realized you had your tongue firmly planted in your cheek, I thought you had completely lost your marbles! 😄
