What we praise reveals what we value. Within our culture, we praise the freedom of the self; we praise the strong, the bold, and the confident; we even praise those who go out and get what they want no matter what the cost.

How do we make sense of the tension between our desires and our calling as Christians? We ask ourselves, “What kind of Jesus does Jesus want us to be?”
