Galatians 4 (in 140 characters or less)

God sent his Son for us to receive adoption. How can you turn back to worthless principles? You, like Isaac, are children of promise.

Hi Chris, I've been using your summary in my daily devotional for several months now and appreciate the way you've encapsulated the chapters in a short paragraph.
My question is regarding Galatians 4:14 where it briefly describes Paul's condition. It seems his condition is grotesque defined by the time he was stoned, but there's other issues he physically displays yet the Galatians overlook those. Can you describe all that Paul displays in his appearance here?


Interesting question about Gal 4. I'd not given it much thought before. I suppose from the reference in v15 to their wanting to give him their eyes it's probably about problems with Paul's eyesight. I've heard people speculating that to be the reason for the 'large letters' he uses in Gal 6 as well. That would certainly make sense of him being a burden to them.


V 17 Those people are zealous to win you over, but for no good.
There will always be people who want to take us back to the old way of living...but we are to stand firm and keep the faith.
