Foundations for Living

1 And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual R99 men, but as to men R100 of flesh, as to infants R101 in Christ. 2 I gave you milk R102 to drink, not solid food; for you were R103 not yet able to receive it. Indeed, even now you are not yet able, 3 for you are still fleshly. For since there is jealousy R104 and strife among you, are you not fleshly, and are you not walking like R105 F30 mere men? 4 For when one R106 says, "I am of Paul," and another, "I am of Apollos," are you not mere men? R107

5 What then is Apollos? And what is Paul? Servants R108 through whom you believed, even as R109 the Lord gave opportunity to each one. 6 I R110 planted, Apollos R111 watered, but God R112 was causing the growth. 7 So then neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but God who causes the growth. 8 Now he who plants and he who waters are one; but each will receive R113 his own reward F31 according to his own labor. 9 For we are God's fellow R114 workers; you are God's field, R115 F32 God's building. R116

10 According to the R117 grace of God which was given to me, like a wise master builder I R118 laid a foundation, and another R119 is building on it. But each man must be careful how he builds on it. 11 For no man can lay a foundation R120 other than the one which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12 Now if any man builds on the foundation with gold, silver, precious F33 stones, wood, hay, straw, 13 each R121 man's work will become evident; for the R122 day will show it because it is to be revealed with fire, and the fire itself will test the F34 quality of each man's work. 14 If any man's work which he has built on it remains, he will receive R123 a reward. 15 If any man's work is burned up, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so R124 as through fire.

16 Do R125 you not know that you R126 are a temple F35 of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? 17 If any man destroys the temple F36 of God, God will destroy him, for the temple F36 of God is holy, and that F37 is what you are.

18 Let R127 no man deceive himself. If R128 any man among you thinks that he is wise in this R129 age, he must become foolish, so that he may become wise. 19 For the R130 wisdom of this world is foolishness before God. For it is written, "He is THE R131 ONE WHO CATCHES THE WISE IN THEIR CRAFTINESS"; 20 and again, "THE R132 LORD KNOWS THE REASONINGS of the wise, THAT THEY ARE USELESS." 21 So then let R133 no one boast in men. For all R134 things belong to you, 22 whether R135 Paul or Apollos or Cephas or the world or life R136 or death or things present or things to come; all things belong to you, 23 and you R137 belong to Christ; and Christ R138 belongs to God.
