When we tell you these things, we do not use words that come from human wisdom. Instead, we speak words given to us by the Spirit, using the Spirit’s words to explain spiritual truths. But people who aren’t spiritual can’t receive these truths from God’s Spirit.
It all sounds foolish to them and they can’t understand it, for only those who are spiritual can understand what the Spirit means. Those who are spiritual can evaluate all things, but they themselves cannot be evaluated by others.
1 Co 2:13
Give me the ability to see the truths that I naturally resist. Teach me to look intently with courage at the hard truths that govern our world. Cause me to love justice and compassion the way that you do.
Help me to stand up against exploitation and brutality even when I share the same interests as the privileged class causing the suffering. Give me courage to take action to make the world kinder for all.
