A few things I noticed in today's reading:
What a cool analogy about being "pregnant" with trouble. Just as a women is pregnant with a child, it grows and grows until it is fully developed. Evil also often begins small, almost unnoticeable, and then it grows and grows until it cannot be ignored.
Sometimes as we look around and see the chaos of the world right now we might think God is not seeing the evil that is in our world. We might desire to call out to God for judgement because we want to stop the madness that society proclaims as acceptable. We are just mere humans and sometimes we fail to realize that while others may be sinning differently than us, we ALL fall short of His kingdom.
Acts 18:3 Paul lived and worked with them, for they were tentmakers just as he was.
For some reason, "just as he was" stood out for me today. I guess I never really thought of Paul as having a "real" job or skill....besides preaching and writing. I think that's something that we can appreciate about ourselves too. God has blessed us with many diverse skills and talents and we can use all of them to glorify him...whether making tents, preaching, or writing.
