What a great new day!

It’s gone 8:00am and I’m still in bed because I have one day off.

Yippee.

I have a pension, no matter how much I may wish it was bigger 35 years ago something triggered within me to plant a few “seeds”.

Today I get to review how well they’ve germinated.

Now I get to drink a cup of tea with the good book!

Holding forth the word of life;

that I may rejoice in the day of Christ,

that I have not run in vain,

neither laboured in vain.

Philippians 2:16

Had I been born 500 years earlier things may have been so different.

I’d be much worse off, with few prospects, no home of my own, and no Bible in my mother tongue.

Thanks to Tyndale and a nation that embraced the Word of God things are so different.

So (for once) I’ve made time to dip into various passages.

It was one of Paul’s “throw away lines” that caught my attention.

I do believe

All scripture is given by inspiration of God,

and is profitable for doctrine,

for reproof, for correction,

for instruction in righteousness:

2 Timothy 3:16

However just a part of a verse “blew me away” this morning.

“Then the weak person, the brother for whom Christ died,..”

1 Corinthians 8:11

Today’s picture shows one such person.

What an honour that this school drop out,

was given an opportunity to “make it” in sales,

and somehow start building on eternal foundations.

Whilst the passage I read was all about eating food offered to idols Paul is quick to point out the centre of our faith.

Jesus Christ.

May I walk worthily today, as a redeemed weak person”.
