Rohr drives home his three “P”s: power, prestige, and possessions. And he asks in conclusion: “How are these keeping us from the kingdom.”
Our culture values all three, not knowing that they are the very thing that might trip us up from actually working with God. In a world of “who you know,” “what you know,” and “how you use what you know,” God sent his Son as a model of weakness, humility, and poverty. And it was that Son who pointed us to eternal hope!
God is in the business of finding us in our lostness in these three “P”s and transforming us into givers, servants, and lovers! Come Lord Jesus.
