Wrecking the Ranking System



Rankings. We’re a culture that is obsessed with them.

Check any website these days, and you’ll find any number of Top 10 articles and videos. No matter how old or young we are, we constantly measure ourselves against a system designed to give everyone else a metric of our worth.

Except for Jesus. In the Kingdom of Jesus, there is only one ranking system, for each has been created in the very image of God. Yet each of us has forgotten this about someone, or a group of people, at one point or another. The question we have to ask ourselves is; what is my default reaction when I see a person in need when I see someone created in the image of God, in need?

When Jesus died on the cross for us, the ranking system of the world was shattered, and we have to let those broken pieces fall from our own hands. When we see a need, as Jesus’ followers, it must solicit a response.
