Key Words: Do ye not know
There is an old saying, “What you don’t know won’t hurt you.” Well, that’s a big lie! What you don’t know can kill you, and will surely lead to some hard times.
In our Scripture reading for today, some of the members were taking other members to court so Paul asked them seven questions:
Verse 2: “do ye not know” in regard to saints judging the world.
Verse 3: “know ye not” we shall judge angels?
Verse 9: “know ye not” unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God?
Verse 15: “know ye not” your bodies are the members of Christ?
Verse 16: “what, know ye not” in regard to being joined to harlots.
Verse 19: “what, know ye not” your body is the temple of God?
What they didn’t know did hurt!!
During the Franco-German War of 1870-71, two unexploded shells were found near a house. The homeowner cleaned them up and put them on display near his fireplace. A few weeks later he showed these interesting objects to a visitor. His friend, an expert in munitions, suddenly had a horrible thought. “What if they’re still loaded?” After quickly examining the shells, he exclaimed, “Get them away from the fire immediately! They’re as deadly as the day they were made!” Without realizing it, the homeowner had been living in grave peril.
What you don’t know will hurt you!!
