Reading: 1 Corinthians 3:18-4:5
Books: The First Epistle to the Corinthians by Anthony C. Thiselton
Quote: Speaking of verses 4:1 and 2, Anthony C. Thiselton suggests that the concept Paul is referring to is that of an “estate manager.” He writes: “This office normally included responsibility for overseeing a household budget, purchasing, accounts, resource allocation, collection of debts, and general running of the establishment, but only as instructed within guidelines agreed by the employer or the head of the house.”
My life is one of contradictions. I’m a southern boy living in northern New England; a boring guy married to super-fun girl; a conservative pastor in a progressive Christian denomination; a changed man in need of change; a sinner loved by a holy and perfect God.
