1Co 1:17 For Christ sent me, not to give baptism, but to be a preacher of the good news: not with wise words, for fear that the cross of Christ might be made of no value.
I am thankful because now no one can say that you were baptized in my name.
Christ did not give me the work of baptizing people. He gave me the work of telling the Good News. But he sent me to tell the Good News without using clever speech, which would take away the power that is in the cross of Christ.
The teaching about the cross seems foolish to those who are lost. But to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
As the Scriptures say, “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise. I will confuse the understanding of the intelligent.”
So what does this say about the philosopher, the law expert, or anyone in this world who is skilled in making clever arguments? God has made the wisdom of the world look foolish.
This is what God in his wisdom decided: Since the world did not find him through its own wisdom, he used the message that sounds foolish to save those who believe it.
Psa 127:3 Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
If the Lord is not helping the builders, then the building of a house is to no purpose: if the Lord does not keep the town, the watchman keeps his watch for nothing.
It is of no use for you to get up early, and to go late to your rest, with the bread of sorrow for your food; for the Lord gives to his loved ones in sleep.
See, sons are a heritage from the Lord; the fruit of the body is his reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a man of war, are the children of the young.
Happy is the man who has a good store of them; he will not be put to shame, but his cause will be supported by them against his haters.
