Fuller: the expositor's prayer

March 12, 2009

    Brothers, I could not address you as spiritual but as worldly--mere infants in Christ. I gave you milk, not solid food, for you were not yet ready for it.
    -- 1 Corinthians 3:1,2a (NIV)

    Grant that I may never rack a Scripture simile beyond the true intent thereof, lest, instead of sucking milk, I squeeze blood out of it.
    ... Thomas Fuller (1608-1661), Good thoughts in bad times, "Scripture Observations," I. (see the book)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your word is food for me.
