How do you live in the presence of the people of the world? When you speak of Christianity, the church, the Scriptures, or something of that nature, how do you conduct yourself? Remember how Paul lived among the Corinthians,

For our boasting is this: the testimony of our conscience that we conducted ourselves in the world in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom but by the grace of God, and more abundantly toward you (2 Corinthians 1.12). 

Paul and his team lived simple lives in godly sincerity. Fleshly wisdom did not direct them, but the grace of God did, and when the Corinthians converted to Christ, Paul and his friends showed those qualities even more.

Questions:

  • What does your life say about your beliefs?
  • Do you care what others think of your life?
