Paul is telling Corinthians that the suffering he is undergoing is really for them. How was Paul’s suffering for the Corinthians? To bring it back to us and our life, how is it that my suffering is for someone else or vice versa? We can be of help to one another much more than just quoting scriptures, but quoting scriptures with supported real life experiences! That is how a real Body of Christ works and grows in love. If you are in the same body, ONE BODY, then you are experiencing things together, upholding one another in Faith!
“Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.” Ephesians 5:15-16
A person spends his life spinning around in vanity, attempting to make his life better here on earth. But all this chaos and work will not give you eternity. Be careful not to be distracted by this vanity. Seek first the Kingdom of Heaven!
