1 Peter 1:17-18

KJV 17 And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man's work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear: 18 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;

WEB 17 If you call on him as Father, who without respect of persons judges according to each man’s work, pass the time of your living as foreigners here in reverent fear, 18 knowing that you were redeemed, not with corruptible things, with silver or gold, from the useless way of life handed down from your fathers,

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

17 We should call out to the Lord and look to Him for direction. God is doesn’t judge based off anything more then the heart and actions. We can’t see the heart but see actions. We should let people have chances to do works for the Lord but sometimes people maybe trying to rush God’s plan and if we do we often rush growth or expect work without the growth first.

18 Silver and gold and doesn’t mean much compared to the cross, nothing is more valuable then us having a restored relationship with the Lord.
