I Cor 3:3 "Am I Being Merely Human?" (August 20)
I Corinthians 3:3 When there is jealousy in you, among you, are you not of the flesh and behaving only in a human way? Back-to-school days remind me of being jealous over what other kids could do that mine couldn't. Behavior was way too important on my school list. Breaking the moral code.
The LORD has assigned to each of us what we need. Only God makes it all grow. How arrogant of me to think that all is good and I can make something happen in another life. According to the Grace of God, He will give out and He will perform. So, why do freshly sharpened pencils and trendy backpacks and empty notebooks invite me to human behavior? Why do I behave in a human way? What do I fear? Is this coming from a good place in my heart? We are more than merely human.
