31 And taking the twelve, he said to them, “See, we are going up to Jerusalem, and everything that is written about the Son of Man by the prophets will be accomplished. 32 For he will be delivered over to the Gentiles and will be mocked and shamefully treated and spit upon.33 And after flogging him, they will kill him, and on the third day he will rise.” 34 But they understood none of these things. This saying was hidden from them, and they did not grasp what was said. – Luke 18:31-34
“I really messed up this time.” It’s a phrase none of us want to say, but sadly we all have to say it eventually. If these words have left your lips recently, you know how helpless you can feel after you realize how stupid your decision was that you are now regretting.
Does God really care about your human relationships? Does he care about what’s going on between two friends? Does God care about who you like or don’t like romantically? Does God just shrug his shoulders when you ask him about that person you had extra-long eye contact with? Does God care what methods you are using in your dating life? Does he care about who you decide to marry?
