Hear is Wisdom:
What is joy to one man, may be sorrow to the next. What is spiritual to one may not be received by another. Envy, strife, bitterness, are not all these of the flesh…So, that one complains of wrong, while another shouts with joy…over the same Word.
Who is to judge when the Sword of the Word cuts or divides, for the purposes of God are unfathomable to man…His mysteries hidden in the deep things of the Word. For one may judge in strife, while another sees harmony and peace…but is it not all the same meat…Word.
Those who are exercised by the Spirit in faith, see and receive the deeper things of God. Those seeking their own, find it hard to understand His Word…and often find offense with an others meat. Lacking patients and understanding they seek to lay blame at another’s house.
Blessed are you, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for My sake.
Be of good cheer, and rejoice… be exceeding glad; for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets who were before you.
Are you often offended by the Word of God or discussions concerning the faith? Consider why?
