We have not received the spirit of the world but the Spirit who is from God, that we may understand what God has freely given us. (1 Corinthians 2:12)

I was talking to an ederly lady on a flight home during Christmas leave years ago. As we discussed her grandchildren and other things, she asked me what I did for a living. I told her I was an Airborne Ranger. Her response was typical for those who know nothing about the military, ‘Oh, that's good. We need people to take care of our forests and animals.’ This nice lady didn't have a clue. It's the same with the world. When it comes to spiritual things, they just don't get it. But we should! As believers in Christ, we have the Spirit of God within us and we should know better. Live what you know!
