Today’s Reading: Ezra 5:1‐6:22, 1 Corinthians 3:5‐23, Psalm 29:1‐11, Proverbs 20:26‐27
1 Corinthians 3:7 – So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth.
- Context: Paul is continuing his argument against the divisions in the church based on which Christian teacher they followed. In verse six we read: “I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth.”
- The one who plants and he who waters is nothing
- Only God gives the growth
Apply: I am capable of nothing in myself. I want to be faithful to plant and water while remembering nothing in ministry happens apart from the work of God.
Prayer: “God give growth!”
In you ministry, are you shouldering more regret or credit than you deserve? God gives growth.
