Do Jesus’s words count in your life?

1 Corinthians 3:19 ‘For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight’

“Surely God gives me a mind with which to reason?” “Surely I can do things for myself?” “Look at what I have achieved.” There are many thoughts that can take place around the question of what is true wisdom? Self-preservation and self-provision thinking is pride because we take away our dependency from God and place it exclusively on ourselves. We may believe that we have achieved certain things in our own strength ….without God in the equation? What is true wisdom then? Proverbs 9:10 ‘The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom…’ Luke 9:23 ‘Then he said to them all: "Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.” “What about work, what about my family?” Take courage in what Jesus says in Mathew 6:23 ‘But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.’ Our LORD is our provider, it is important to remember that.

Prayer. Holy LORD, our gracious King, may we never forget all the wonderful blessings that you have placed in our lives. Please bless Lambert and Ida with conceiving a healthy baby, please assist Therreza to find suitable work. Please heal and restore Roger, Don, Petra, Beverley John, Racheal, Pauline, Billy, Bernadette, Jenny, Sarah, Stacey, Paul, Maria, Margaret, Jill, Teena, Ingrid, Debra, Trish, Michelle, Pedro, Charlotte, Chad, Anton, Mary, Nicky, Lidia, Tony, baby Mia, Kathy, Michael, Brandon, Mark. Amen.
