Today, we read one chapter in the Apostle Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians and three chapters in 1 Chronicles.
1 Corinthians 2. Paul proclaimed Christ crucified, relying only on God’s power. This is God’s secret wisdom, spiritual wisdom, and in applying this “we have the mind of Christ“.
1 Chronicles 19. Wars continued, the Ammonites and the Syrians were defeated.
1 Chronicles 20. Wars went on, Rabbah was conquered and the Philistine giants were destroyed.
1 Chronicles 21, David took a census of Israel and Judah. This was a great sin and the LORD gave David three options how the country should be punished. David chose to be in the hands of the LORD, and the nation was punished by being visited by the angel of the LORD. The angel stopped at Araunah’s threshing floor, the future site of the Temple.
