That’s Just Foolishness!

A Community of Love  1 Corinthians 1:18-31

Prayer for the Day:
O God, the source of life. You care for us from birth and bless our lives. We spend our energy seeking to become important and powerful in the eyes of the world. Mysterious and compelling God, whose ways spun our values upside-down, you change seeming foolishness and weakness into wisdom and strength. O God, our life is appraised by strength, power and possessions, but as followers of Jesus, life is measured by what we share—your seeds of truth, compassion and resources that make possible works of love. Amen.

Question for reflection:
1 Corinthians 1:18 can be a challenge to how we think.  What sources of information did you rely on recently resulting in a personal or vocational decision? What information or observations shaped your assumptions and conclusions shaping your decision?
