7/23 1 Corinthians 1,2 - When Paul wrote this first letter to the Corinthian church he had quite a number of issues to bring up to them. One of the first was their having disputes in their church which caused division amongst them. Paul reminded them that God didn't choose them because of their good qualities. God chose those who were "nothing" to show to the world what He could do! In chapter 2 Paul speaks of the Spirit's work to help us understand God's Word and know God's plan.

7/26 1 Corinthians 3,4 - In chapter 3 Paul again speaks against the babyish way these believers were treating each other. He also spoke of their work for the Lord that it would be judged according to their motivation to serve: was their work "gold, silver, or precious stones," or was their work just "wood, hay, and stubble"? In chapter 4 Paul spoke of his willingness to serve Christ even if he was considered a "fool."
