Thursday – Letters

Reading – 1 Corinthians 3-4

Highlight Verse:

“I had to feed you with milk, not with solid food, because you weren’t ready for anything stronger. And you still aren’t ready,”
‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭3‬:‭2‬ ‭NLT‬‬

We got yet another graduation notice in the mail today. All the kids are growing up so fast.

But graduation isn’t all it takes to grow up.

Paul basically says here, “I’ve taught you all the elementary stuff but you’re still not ready to move on.” He goes on to describe the jealousy and pride that is keeping the church at Corinth divided.

The people are looking at what sets them apart from each other rather than what unites them.

A baby can’t walk, much less work. Someone stuck in pride and jealousy will likewise find it hard to walk the life that God has for them.

Even as I have been walking with the Lord for decades, I still get caught up in pride that impedes my progress toward accomplishing the goals set before me.

I need to not be afraid to become one of those fools from verse 18 of chapter 3.

What is holding you back from living your spiritual life to the fullest?
Do you have a problem with being perceived as a fool?
