Think about it

We can consider what stories are shaping our own view of the world and of our place in it. We can consider whether we are valuing the traditions we have inherited while at the same time being mindful of the cultures in which we live. We can ask ourselves whether we are appropriately critical of values or norms of our culture that we may take for granted but that Jesus expressly opposed through his teaching or example. We can consider the extent to which we live our lives as citizens of the new era inaugurated by Jesus and as people whose lives are marked by the humility of the cross and the hope of resurrection.—Matthew Gordley, New Testament Christological Hymns, p. 234
