Focus Scripture: 1 Corinthians 15:10
Maybe I'm dating myself, but today's focus scripture reminds me of Popeye.
"I am what I am and that's all that I am. I'm Popeye the Sailor Man. Toot Toot!"
Dear Popeye, with no illusions about who he is.
Paul too has no illusions about who he is. He says he is the least of the apostles. He acknowledges the hurtful things he did persecuting the Church. He gives thanks for how God's grace changed him. And he said that who he is, is through the grace of God.
We, too, are who we are. We are only who we are and that, through the grace of God. We are who we are and that's all that we are. We're children of God. Amen.
