Sermon: Grown Up Food

“Grown Up Food”

(February 13, 2011) As children, our motivation for doing what our parents ask of us often revolves around hope for reward and fear of punishment. As we mature, however, we realize that the choice to do what is good out of love and respect and a desire for goodness alone is valuable. Likewise, as children in our faith, we may begin with the notion that we should do as God asks so that we can be rewarded or avoid punishment. Maturity in faith leads us to a place where we want to serve and follow God not for a reward, but for the simple joy of loving and serving God. (Deuteronomy 30:15-20, 1 Corinthians 3:1-9, which I will read in the recording, since the lead-in to the scripture reading was worth saving)
