For the young, that they may grow in wisdom
For the mature, that they would stay on the path of Christ
Today’s text: Acts 4:1-12
WATCH WORKERS BUILD A STRUCTURE; they begin by carefully measuring and preparing the ground, making everything is square and level. Everything else depends on a level foundation. Each stage of construction must be tested against what has happened before, because otherwise things will be out of proportion and the structure will be unstable, out of balance, even dangerous.
Peter and John declare to those who accuse them that “the rulers of the people” are building their lives without checking to make sure that each part is in proportion and in alignment with God’s word, and they are teaching others to do the same. Their lives are without foundation, and the proof is that they crucified Jesus of Nazareth, the Savior sent by God.
As we build our lives, wisdom says be vigilant and ensure that each new portion is built upon the foundation, the name that is given for our salvation. Learn his ways! Walk in his paths! Build upon him, the glorious cornerstone!
May your day be grace-filled ~ Pr. Dave Brooks
