Our culture is often influencing us in ways we don’t realize. The well worn track of popular opinion and expectations in our culture can shape and define us. So many of the assumptions we make about life are defined by the culture we live in. Often how we define normal is determined by things we seldom think about, we just realize they “are.”

If you choose to follow Jesus, His teaching challenges us to live beyond the norm, to challenge our assumptions about people, and the situations we encounter. He even challenges our assumptions about ourselves. Each of the encounters with Jesus in this series reveals a portion of Jesus’ view of life and people. Maybe it will take you Out of the Box.
