Behaving Like Mere Men?

“For where there are envy, strife, and divisions among you, are you not carnal and behaving like mere men?” 1 Corinthians 3:3

“And you are Christ’s, and Christ is God’s.” 1 Corinthians 3:23

I’ve heard, “you are only human” before when I’ve shared disappointment in myself.

Lord, thank You for Your forgiveness and grace when I fall short of what I should do. But please let me never forget that I’m not merely human . . .I’m Yours. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Christ Beings

I know we look just human
but there’s more going on inside

though satan tempts us to forget
and just let it slide

but Christ lives within us
and gives us all things

that we might use it for His glory
and be His Holy Spirit beings.

Learning To Be Mindful

“Then He charged them saying, ‘Take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the leaven of Herod.’
So they reasoned among themselves, saying, ‘It is because we have no bread.'” Mark 8:15-16

It’s easy for me to elevate the apostles and forget that they were human . . .just like me.

Thank You, Jesus, for taking ordinary earthly people and making disciples of them. And here’s a simple poem . . .

The Things of God

Jesus warned them of the Pharisees’ leaven
and they looked upon their bread,

He spoke to them in parables
but they didn’t understand what He said

Yet Jesus didn’t throw up His hands
and simple walk away

He taught them to be mindful
of the things of God each day.
