Have you ever experienced “the thing underneath the thing?” Maybe your child had a hard day at school, and you are on the receiving end of it. Maybe your co-worker blew up at you, and it really doesn’t have anything to do with you at all. There are always motivations and assumptions, blessings and wounds, underneath our behavior - sometimes they are healthy and sometimes not so much. At the end of Luke 9 Jesus says some hard things. Initially it seems as if Jesus is pushing people away, but Jesus is always aware of “the thing underneath the thing.” Rather than mute the words of Jesus, let’s lean in and receive them - they just might be the smelling salts of truth that awaken us and jerk us back into seeing Him and worshipping Him.
