Giving it up: Expectations

Sermon for March 12, 2017

We continue our Lenten series on Giving it up. This week we talk about giving up our expectations.

Unmet expectations are what lead to splintered relationships. We see it in our views of the government, coworkers, friends and family. We expect some pretty big things of people, without communicating those things, and if people don’t meet those expectations we have hurt people all over the place.

When it comes to our relationship with God we also have a lot of expectations. We think God will do for us anything we want as long as we have been good or at least gone to church and prayed a few times. When God doesn’t do for us what we expect, we turn away from him and abandon the relationship.

Today we are going to talk about expectations and its time to Give IT Up!
