Sara walks us through Jesus' teaching about what contaminates a life and how ritual compliance with the legalism of the day isn't what makes anyone clean. Then or now. Which begs the question: "What are we hung up on that prevents us from loving others?" The condition of our hearts is what contaminates our lives, and practices like the Lectio Divina help us create space for our hearts to be formed by God as we journey towards the "good life" and away from any legalism that paralyzes our claims of love. Mark 7:1-23. Mark 7:6-7. Deuteronomy 10:12-22.
