Fuller: the expositor's prayer

Saturday, June 22, 2019
    Feast of Alban, first Martyr of Britain, c.209
    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 [1645], Chicago: United Society of Christian Endeavor, Boston, 1898, “Scripture Observations,” I (see the book)
    See also 1 Cor. 3:1-2; Matt. 18:3-4; Luke 24:45; Acts 17:2-3,11; Gal. 3:16; 1 Tim. 4:13; Heb. 5:12-14; 1 Pet. 2:2
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your word is food for me.
