My devotion for today is based on the words of Saint Paul in 1 Corinthians 1:26,27 “Think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise and the weak things of the world to shame the strong.”
It’s interesting to note that God has completely different ideas than society about wisdom. Knowing that Jesus Christ came to this earth to be our Savior makes us wise beyond all measure. Jesus did what we could not do when he followed his Father’s will to the letter. Jesus also suffered and died on the cross to pay for our sins so we wouldn’t have to. When Jesus rose from the dead, he announced to the world that he had completed everything necessary for our salvation.
Many will not agree with this standard of wisdom. We thank God that he has revealed these standards to us.
Please pray with me: Thank you, Lord, for using your wisdom and power to bring about my salvation. Please help me to remember that true wisdom is knowing who you are and what you have done for me. In Jesus’ blessed name, I pray. Amen
