People Matter. Period.
All of them.
We are quick to judge people as "good" or "bad". But it is not that easy.
Take child abuse - often perpetrated by someone who was themselves abused. I don't consider this an excuse, but I do think that all people matter.
They matter to God, so they ought to matter to us. For if we truly love God, we will love the things He loves.
So we come to church, and get into groups of Jesus followers. In church, guess what... people matter. It does not matter what music you play if no one is singing. You might have the most deep and accurate sermons, but if it is not meeting the needs of the people then... so what?
So I bring you this mini series: People Matter.
