Few of us like to put up with foolishness and waste. We quickly say, “I don’t have time for this!” We move away from it and get back to our goals and agendas. Would you put up with God’s foolishness? Paul calls “God’s foolishness” our salvation. At one time the Christian message of the cross was considered to be folly and foolish. But the cross stands at the center of our faith, even when we back away from it. Jesus brought a New Covenant through the power of the cross. What can we bring to our world when we carry our cross? Salvation emerges from the crosses we carry.
