Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you?
- I Corinthians 3:16
This is what we are erecting, not a lowly hut but a dwelling place for God himself. The goal Paul sets before us carries within two values to consider: ours, as a place where God will find a home, and that of those among whom we live and work. These latter, whether they are conscious of it or not, are also God’s dwelling place and so are to be respected.
Let us consider this powerful basis for mutual respect and resolve to act on it today.
