Thursday, July 19 / August 1, 2002: 1Cor 3:18-23, Matt 13:36-43
- passage: 1Cor 3:18-3:23
Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in
this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise. For the wisdom
of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh
the wise in their own craftiness. And again, The Lord knoweth the
thoughts of the wise, that they are vain. Therefore let no man glory
in men. For all things are yours; Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas,
or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come;
all are yours; And ye are Christ's; and Christ is God's.
passage: Matt 13:36-13:43
Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his
disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares
of the field. He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good
seed is the Son of man; The field is the world; the good seed are the
children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked
one; The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of
the world; and the reapers are the angels. As therefore the tares are
gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.
The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out
of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;
And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and
gnashing of teeth. Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in
the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
