Scripture for the day is 1 Corinthians 1:18, 22-25

For the message about the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.

For Jews demand signs and Greeks desire wisdom, 23 but we proclaim Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, 24 but to those who are the called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. 25 For God’s foolishness is wiser than human wisdom, and God’s weakness is stronger than human strength.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, how wise you were in your creation of the world. But, if possible, the wisdom of your redemption is even more stunning, as the cross made it possible for you to be perfectly holy yet love us – to be both just and justifier of those who believe (Romans 3:26). Who can praise your wisdom enough? Amen.
