Flipped Focus

Today's reading: 1 Corinthians 1:10-17

Paul addresses some discord that has arisen within the church body in 1 Corinthians 1:10-17. Drawing from his letter, the believers in Corinth are letting their personal preferences for specific teachers (traits, mannerisms, personalities) cause divisions among them, which in turn, is taking their focus away from the vital message of Christ.

We all have preferences. It's part of how we're wired. So how do you keep personal preferences in check when it comes to the preaching and teaching of God's Word (and other things) at church? How might you help and respond to someone whose strong personal preferences may be pulling them off target? Tami
