Daily Nugget


Thursday, October 27th, 2011.



Today's cherished Nugget from guest blogger Pastor Bill.


A lady went into a drugstore the other day and pointed to some toothbrushes on a rack. “Let me have a pink one,” she requested. To her surprise, the clerk took down an orange one. “No, pink,” she reminded him. This time he selected a lavender one. My friend began to sense the difficulty. “No, I said pink,” she repeated pleasantly; the clerk’s finger hovered uncertainly over the rack and neared the desired color. “That one,” she declared emphatically. “I see you’re color-blind,” she remarked as he wrapped her purchase.

With a sheepish smile he confessed, “I always call blue ‘green.’ ” But this same friend had a color-blind relative who doggedly insisted that certain colors were a figment of other people’s imaginations because he could not distinguish them. Do not be surprised when those who do not know God cannot accept as real the spiritual truths He has revealed through His Word. The “eyes of their understanding” have never been opened.
The apostle Paul tells us in Corinthians 2:12-14:
“Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”
"God, thank You for Your Holy Spirit and the discernment You give to us.
Amen."


Bro. Bill

God is Love! Let us reflect that love.
