Thursday October 6, 2016 Stupid

Are you so stupid?  After beginning with the spirit, are you now ending with the flesh?  Galatians 3:3

Paul never did mince words but my mother would have washed his mouth out with soap.  She forbid her children to use the word stupid.  Some bible translations use the word foolish but I believe Paul had it right in this case.  Merriam-Webster says:  Full Definition of stupid. 1a : slow of mind : obtuse b : given to unintelligent decisions or acts : acting in an unintelligent or careless manner c : lacking intelligence or reason : brutish.  The Galatians had received the truth, had received the Holy Spirit and were living The Way.  Then they began to go off the path, SINNING and putting their trust in the flesh… what they could see, touch, feel and taste.  That is the definition of stupid…  given to unintelligent acts or acting in an unintelligent manner.

He was adamant because He loved them and KNEW that they KNEW better!

Fear of the Lord is the foundation of true wisdom.  All who obey his commandments will grow in wisdom.  Psalm 111:10  The Israelites and the Jews knew that God was and is all wisdom.  Faith in the power and glory of God in all His persons… Father, Son and Holy Spirit is our only hope.  Today is no different than in St Paul’s day.  The temptations of the flesh draw us away for the life that God has called me to live.  Am I so STUPID as to think that I can find salvation in things?  Only God is the Way, the Truth and the Life!

Dear Lord, enlighten me and help me to be Your child of the light.  Open my eyes and my heart to always seek You and follow You all the days of my life.
