Faith in the Power of God (1 Corinthians 2:4-6)

Today’s scripture: 1 Corinthians 2:4-6

Every time I peruse the Internet, I’m amazed at how many “experts” are out there … Just search on “how to lose weight.” Everyone and his brother—or sister—seems to know exactly what you need to do to get thin.

Eat more carbs … no, eat less carbs. Go vegan … no, add more meat. Eat this combination of foods … no, eat this combination.

Experts all.

And we buy into it all. We seek the wisdom of man. In fact, we put our faith in that wisdom.

That’s not very … well, wise.

People can let us down; indeed, they do time and time again. Relying on the wisdom of others, those we know and those we access via the Internet, can be a slippery slope.

So whom can we trust? Whose wisdom will never steer us wrong?

Faith in God and His power is always wise; trusting His goodness, His word, His grace will never let us down.

Have you put your faith in the world’s wisdom? Keep your faith in the One who loves you and whose power will carry you.
