Title: Dealing with Scum
Author: Hal Hester
Scripture Read: 1 Corinthians 4.1-21
Description: While the majority of the church lived under persecution Corinth enjoyed freedom and wealth, sadly leaving them plenty of time for theological debate and less need for one another. With great sardonic wit Paul reminds them (and us) that affluence does not prove God’s favor as the life of the Apostles will attest. Sometimes serving God leaves us looking like the scum of the earth.
