Minister's Moment: My gift's better than yours
My Gift’s Better Than Yours
1 Corinthians 12
“Now concerning spiritual gifts, brothers and sisters, I do not want you to be uninformed.” So Paul begins one of the pivotal chapters in his letters—one we remember well, quote often, and (for those of us who do that sort of thing) preach.
Paul has spent most of the previous eleven chapters taking the Corinthians to task for a variety of misdeeds and shortcomings. The church at Corinth is often cited as being both a church with problems and the one most like congregations today. If we look hard enough, we can probably find ourselves somewhere in those pages.
