“…Don’t fool yourself by your limited thinking.“ – – 1 Corinthians 6:9-10
So, you are thinking? That’s a good thing! And those thoughts are – what? They are your thoughts? Have you been able to get past your own thinking – and think with God and His expressed thoughts?
What are you thinking? Are you “stuck” with only your thoughts? Or have you allowed God to help you think?
What experience do you have in the universe, to be a foundation for your thoughts – by you, yourself? On what do you build your thoughts? Is it only from you and others like you? Do you live your own way?
God’s astounding thoughts are recorded in the Bible. I am amazed, reading the Bible, at how He, The Potter, cared enough about us, puny little mud men… to lower Himself to our level and actually communicate His thoughts, His Way, His view of the universe. Wow!
My unauthorized paraphrase of 1 Corinthians 6:9-10:
9 Don’t you know this!?
…that those who live their own way
will not actually get into God’s Kingdom?
They won’t have even the slightest share in it!
Don’t fool yourself by your limited thinking.
Not one person who lives their life their own way
will ever inherit the Kingdom of God or share in any part of it….”
–Swift’s Amped-up Paraphrase of the Passage (AMPED-UP) – 1 Corinthians 6:9-10
From an eternal perspective, the kind God has, my thoughts are quite puny and limited. What on earth would make me think that I know eternal things! I’ll return to the dust from which I came! But God has shared His Truth with us by orchestrating the writing of what we now have – the Bible. Because of it – I have knowledge of eternal things! I know what God did, what God has accomplished, and what He wants from me. My thinking is based on God’s expressed thoughts.
On what do you base your thinking?
…and we are merely His creatures. We are mere puny mud-men, clay in the Potter’s hand. – From The Damning God “God is all that matters.He matters because on That Day, someday, we (every one of us!) will stand before…
…putty, the mud, in the Sculptor’s hands. Is the mud to question the potter? I stand amazed looking at the arrogant mud-man shaking his puny little mud-fist —- at God, the Potter! At God! Ha! What impudence. What futility, despair…
