Edifier du Jour-1 Peter 2:4-6
4 And coming to Him as to a living stone which has been rejected by men, but is choice and precious in the sight of God, 5 you also, as living stones, are being built up as a spiritual house for a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 6 For this is contained in Scripture: "BEHOLD, I LAY IN ZION A CHOICE STONE, A PRECIOUS CORNER stone, AND HE WHO BELIEVES IN HIM WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED."
Literally, believers don't fit in this world. We're designed to fit into a better place. We can still function in this world, but we won't quite be comfortable with the fit. Collectively, we're designed do build a temple for God, not build a school or a factory or a strip mall. Eileen and I were praying through a hard feeling of not fitting in last night, especially for Eileen, who's working at a secular locale at the moment. The bad news from this verse is that we're not supposed to fit in. The good news is that we have a better place to fit in to.
