We do see Jesus, who for a little while was made lower than the angels, now crowned with glory and honor because of the suffering of death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone. (Hebrews 2:9 NRSV)
There is a story of a church that was producing a special dramatic program. In order to make room for the pageant, several articles in the front of the worship center were removed. One was the American flag. Boy, did that bring flack! But the pastor noted, wryly, "Nobody mentioned the fact that the cross had been removed for the play, also." People were upset over the flag being absent from the sanctuary but not the cross!

There is a greater symbol than all. It is the cross upon which Christ died for our sins.

Let's keep our proper focus on that which really matters.

Dear Jesus, forgive me when I lose my focus and narrowly focus on the insignificant. May I today see you more clearly and faithfully. Amen.
