In today's 1st reading from 1 Corinthians 8, Paul writes: Knowledge inflates pride, but love builds up. If anyone supposes he knows something, he does not yet know as he ought to know. But if one loves God, one is known by him. How true this is! I have just seen a case of someone who is proud of what he knows, yet what he knows is all false—a case of not knowing God and thus the truth. To be able to discern the good from the evil, one needs to know God first. Paul also writes that if we love God, we are known by him. How good it is that we let God know us! There is no more rewarding life than remaining in perfect union with our God!
