“For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God” (1 Corinthian 3:19).
The ways of the world are at the least strange and often very foolish when it comes to common sense and following the Word of God. Charles was really upset when he called his youth pastor. “You warned me, Pastor C. But I didn’t think it was going to be this bad. But it is. I am working in the office of highly trained people who believe foolish things. They claim that I am intolerant, and yet all I did was say that I support the Christian baker who has the right not to bake the wedding cake for the gay marriage. Suddenly two really well-educated co-workers screamed at me. I mean she screamed at me and said that people like me are ruining everything for them,” a shaken Charles said. “She’s really smart, Pastor, as far as the world is concerned, but she is foolish as far as God is concerned.” Many of us face people like this every day.
For today: Lord, please help us to keep our focus on You!
