Today´s reading:
OT: Ezra 1-2
NT: I Corinthians 1:18-31, I Corinthians 2:1-5
Ps: Psalm 27:7-14
Pr: Proverbs 20:22-23

Today´s notable verse:

For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.

I Corinthians 2:2 (NIV)

How much better off the church today would be, if we took the same attitude and approach. Either we become prideful in the sophistication of our knowledge and understanding of theology, or else we become judgemental toward those who have a weaker faith, less understanding, or differing beliefs about matters that are entirely non-essential. I would much rather we focus ourselves on the one essential: Jesus Christ and Him cricified. Then, we truly could be united as one church - one body of believers.

I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.

Psalm 27:13 (NIV)
