​Do you show the same love to others that Christ has shown to you? #FoodForThought

Philippians 4:5

Let all men see that you are gentle and kind. The Lord is coming soon.

‘I’m no more special than anyone else’ vis-à-vis ‘Everyone is as special as me.’ #CSLewis

1 Corinthians 12:26-27 

If one part of the body suffers, all the other parts suffer with it. If one part is given special care, the other parts are happy. You are all a part of the body of Christ. 

Instead of assuming that your plans are near to what God desires, seek instead to be in God’s plan.

Psalm 73:16, 20, 27-28

Yet it is so hard to explain it—this prosperity of those who hate the Lord. Their present life is only a dream! They will awaken to the truth as one awakens from a dream of things that never really were! But those refusing to worship God will perish, for He destroys those serving other gods. But as for me, I get as close to Him as I can! I have chosen Him, and I will tell everyone about the wonderful ways He rescues me.

Almighty God, help us not to be drawn to the wisdom of the world

1 Corinthians 1:20-21 

So where can you find someone truly wise, truly educated, truly intelligent in this day and age? Hasn’t God exposed it all as pretentious nonsense? Since the world in all its fancy wisdom never had a clue when it came to knowing God, God in His wisdom took delight in using what the world considered dumb—preaching, of all things!—to bring those who trust Him into the way of salvation.
