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
