Morals of the Clone Wars 2.6: Weapons Factory

Moral: “No gift is more precious than trust.”

I’m not sure I would classify trust as a gift. Generally, you do have to earn it. Maybe more of a wage. Still, it is a precious thing to receive from someone.

Of course, there is a gift more precious than trust. Paul tells us in Romans 6:23, “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord (NIV).” What the church needs to learn though is that gifts are meant to be given. Too often, we expect people to walk into the church and discover the gift on their own; seeker-friendly churches have become the model to strive for in the last couple decades.

I believe rather than trying to entice people into the church, we need to bring Jesus to them where they are. We must get out and give the gift to those who need it.
