1 Corinthians 1:18-31
Question for reflection:
How has God surprised you lately? How has that surprise changed you?
Prayer for the day:
Surprising God, turn my casual regard for daily living toward alert expectation that things can and will be different. Startle me out of my complacency and make me attentive to sharper ways of seeing and deeper ways of understanding. In the name of Christ, the power and wisdom of God, I pray. Amen.
