1 Corinthians 5:6b-8
Your boasting is not a good thing. Do you not know that a little yeast leavens the whole batch of dough? Clean out the old yeast so that you may be a new batch, as you really are unleavened. For our paschal lamb, Christ, has been sacrificed. Therefore, let us celebrate the festival, not with the old yeast, the yeast of malice and evil, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
Food For Thought:
The word boasting is the one that stands out to me. God does not want us to boast in our achievements but instead to clothe ourselves in humility. Think of some of the greatest Christians and think about their humility. What do you think it means to be humble? Meek? Mild? How could you be more of these things?
O God, whose blessed Son made himself known to his disciples in the breaking of bread: Open the eyes of our faith, that we may behold him in all his redeeming work; who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
