Food For Thought

Now therefore, it is already an utter failure for you that you go to law against one another. Why do you not rather accept wrong? Why do you not rather let yourselves be cheated? No, you yourselves do wrong and cheat, and you do these things to your brethren!

1 Corinthians 6:7-8 NKJV

Paul asked some very pointed questions to those who were of the Corinthians church. Those who were of this church were supposed to be brothers and sisters in Christ. How are brothers and sisters in Christ supposed to treat each other? This was the key point that Paul was stressing to those who were of this church.

There should be a bond between all of God’s children, right? Yet, look at how we, God’s children, treat each other— this was Paul’s point. When me and my brother were little, we would have a fight or argue one minute and the next we would be playing together. I imagine that may other sibling relationships were this same way. God’s children should be able to coexist and work things out together.

So, Paul expresses the utter failure it is when we are too stubborn to work things out together. Aren’t we supposed to be wise and mature? Aren’t we supposed to be of the love of God? Yes, it is an utter failure when we do wrong by each other, won’t acknowledge, nor make corrections. My word to you today is this: if you have done wrong by someone, don’t fail yourself and the love of God. If you have wronged someone, don’t cheat them nor yourself- acknowledge your wrong and make the effort to correct yourself.
