God's foolishness

Dearly Beloved, Grace and Peace to you.                  God's foolishness is wiser than human wisdom,           and God's weakness is stronger than human strength.                   —1 Corinthians 1.25

God, forgive me for trusting my certainty against yours, for thinking it weak or foolish to show your grace, to love and love alone as radically as on the cross. When I get mad or insist on my way I cling to my foolishness. When I am anxious about being powerless I covet a strength that doesn't exist.

Spirit, wean me of this foolishness. Let me be unknowing and loving rather than wise and cruel.

O Christ, when others think I'm weak and foolish help me find my strength in you who were even weaker and more foolish than I.

      Deep Blessings, Pastor Steve
