The Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

Chapter Overview
 
1Milk is fit for children.
3Strife and division, arguments of a fleshly mind.
7He that planteth and he that watereth, are nothing.
9The ministers are God's fellow-workmen.
11Christ the only foundation.
16Men the temples of God, which must be kept holy.
19The wisdom of this world is foolishness with God.
