It’s not titles, positions, or diplomas that matter in the end. It’s relationships, the kind that matter. The friendships that leave a tattoo on the heart are better than gravestone poetry. This is what is so good about the good news.
“Does it sound like we’re patting ourselves on the back, insisting on our credentials, asserting our authority? Well, we’re not. Neither do we need letters of endorsement, either to you or from you. You yourselves are all the endorsement we need. Your very lives are a letter that anyone can read by just looking at you. Christ himself wrote it—not with ink, but with God’s living Spirit; not chiseled into stone, but carved into human lives—and we publish it.”
2 Corinthians 3:1-3 MSG
