Scripture

1 Corinthians 4

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What did Paul think of the Corinthians’ attitude? What was his charge (16)?

Application

Do I sometimes think that I am better than others? Do I live in such a way that I can honestly and correctly tell other believers to imitate me?

Prayer

Dear Father, Keep me from an attitude of arrogance and conceit and division. Help me to live in such a way that I can instruct others to imitate my life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Pray to BLESS!

One good way to pray for people is to use the acronym BLESS to pray for God’s blessing on every area of their lives:

  • B – BODY (physical health)
  • L – Labor (their job or school)
  • E – Emotions (emotional health as well as guarding against letting emotions rule)
  • S – Social (relationships with family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, church, etc)
  • S – Spiritual (remaining true to God and growing in Him)

Spend some time praying for the following people and ministries.

  • Moy & Janeth Ortiz
  • Doug & Pam Patchin
  • Jared & Amanda Patchin (Alex, Luke)
  • Keith Rast
