The scripture for today, December 16 (12/16), is Romans 12:16 as found in the New Testament of the Bible:
Who do you associate with? Just people who are like you?
Do you consider people richer than you as greedy, uncaring and uppity? And people poorer than you as lazy, users and lowlifes?
Do you consider people smarter than you as impractical with their heads in the clouds? And people duller than you as incapable of understanding anything important?
Do you consider people stronger than you as egotistical show-offs? And people weaker than you as not worthy of notice?
How this hurts your Savior who died for everyone. We are all sinners. We all need the same saving grace.
Live in harmony with all. Make everyone ~ both those “above” you and “below” you ~ feel the love of God through you. Apply the Golden Rule to your life: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” (Matthew 7:12). Then feel the harmony.
TITUS: THE ARISTOCRAT. Tradition tells us that Titus was from Antioch in the province of Pisidia in today’s Turkey. It was a city full of aristocrats. No one spoke the Greek of commoners. They spoke the Latin of aristocrats. Titus became a lawyer and brilliantly solved crimes his poor clients were falsely accused of committing. After Paul converted Titus, he sent him as an arbitrator to Corinth, then Crete, then up in “barbarian” southern Europe around today’s Albania. He was gifted in helping people get along with each other. He even found a way to get the “false apostle” in Corinth to voluntarily resign and leave and like doing it.
