Devotional Highlights - The Tongue - Part 3 - Tuesday, October 4th

This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, explaining spiritual realities with Spirit-taught words. The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit. The person with the Spirit makes judgments about all things, but such a person is not subject to merely human judgments. 1 Corinthians 2:13-15 NIV

Today's thoughts from today's verses:

Our 1 Corinthians passage says that "The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness." It is the Holy Spirit in our lives that makes all the difference in regard to how we live life here on earth. The whole point of God putting his Spirit in us is to help us overcome living life by just doing what comes naturally. If we just do what comes naturally we will be "antagonistic" in attitude, actions, and words and regularly mistreat other people with our critical, judgmental approach to relationships. Our 1 Corinthians passage goes on to say that "The person with the Spirit makes judgments about all things." This is referring to the good judgement and discernment the Spirit gives that makes it possible for us to provide help and nurture to those who need it. It is also the Spirit who helps us care deeply about the spiritual welfare of others and frees us from the trap of being antagonistic, critical, and judgmental toward people.

Today's prayer response from today's thoughts:

Lord, forgive me for my tendency to live life naturally. Raise the expectation I have for how I will live my life to a level more in keeping with the reality that the Holy Spirit really does live in me. Help me to walk by the Spirit so that I do not carry out the natural desire of the flesh to behave in harmful and hurtful ways toward others. May goodness prevail in my heart, judgments, and words so that I am truly an instrument of help and nurture in the lives of the people around me.
