Passage: 1 Corinthians 4:1 – 5
1.Â In verse 1 of this passage, we are told that we are stewards not just ofÂ money or earthly things, but of the very mysteries of God!Â What does this mean to you?
2.Â In verse 3, Paul states that he counted it a very small thing to be judged by others, even when they’re Christians.Â Have you allowed the opinions of judgment of others to hinder you in your walk with the Lord?Â If so, what can be done about it?
3.Â In verse 5, we are exhorted not to judge things before the Lord comes, because that judgment belongs to the Lord.Â This may be one of the hardest things we are called to do as Christians!Â Why do you think God has reserved this Judgment for Himself?
4.Â Application:Â Stewardship is a great thing to talk about, but what are some concrete steps we can take to ensure we’re faithful in our stewardship?
