I have been assigned the task of reading I Corinthians 13:1-13. I am to read it critically and reflect.
There are many reasons why this hit me like a gut punch, not the least of which is that I wonder if the
Corinthians ever sent anything back to St. Paul ( the person, not the city.) requesting that he let up on the correspondence until they had a chance to process and write back.
This passage is about how good works are meaningless if one’s heart is unclean. I’m going to let that simmer while I examine my patience while my students jump around and seem utterly baffled that I won’t let them draw tanks and pictures of Logan Paul in their prayer journals. ( I know, they are only ten, but at what point an they hold themselves responsible?)
I’m trying to be hopeful. I’ll let you know how that goes.
