In observance of today’s feast, a social media friend polled his contacts today for a favorite verse from Saint Paul. Like many of his friends, I struggled to think of a single favorite. Two snarky thoughts popped into my head. First, can any good formulation of the apostle be boiled down into a single verse? And second, are we supposed to lean to the so-called authentic Paul?
This is what I offered:
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God—what is good and acceptable and perfect. (Romans 12:2)
But I might change it up tomorrow, Who knows?
In the old days when we were awash in regular readers here, I might have thought to conduct a polling competition and see which of sixteen citations would win out over the rest. Anybody want to offer a fave in the comments?
