First Farming Sermon

July 9, 2023

“Do horses run on rocks?
Does one plow there with oxen?

But you have turned justice into poison
and the fruit of righteousness into wormwood.”

Happiness can never be found where there is unrighteousness and injustice. And when one takes the yoke of Jesus, there is happiness even when there is also grief, poverty and persecution. The Kingdom of God may seem upside down to some, but to those of us who know the light burden of our Savior, it makes sense. When people pursue their happiness at the expense of others, they plow the rock. But when love for God and neighbor flows into and out of our lives, happiness and contentment abound.
