Scripture: I Corinthians 8:1-13
“With great privilege comes great responsibility.”
What do you picture when you hear that? I see a parent handing over the car keys to a 16-year-old. Or the founding fathers when they signed the 2nd Amendment. Or the first one, for that matter…
I think of God creating the world and all that breathes in it, and then inviting Adam and Eve to live in all that beauty and tend the garden.
Some of these moments don’t end well.
Then again, some of these moments, we are still living into. We are still walking and moving with God through certain parts of this story. And we might have some role in how it all unfolds.
On Sunday, we’ll hear what Paul told the Corinthians about privilege and responsibility. The Jewish and Gentile converts often fought about things like food laws—things that didn’t really matter so much in the new Christian Community—but Paul always told the bickering factions the same thing: your relationship to God and each other is more important than who is ‘right.’ You have a lot of new freedoms now. But with freedom comes… well, you know. People come first. The rest is just details. - Rev. Erin Wathen, Senior Pastor
