Praying with Paul: 'Genuine Spirituality'

Monday, March 21, 2022

1 Corinthians 3:1-7

Dear Father, growth-giving God,

Help me to be a genuinely spiritual person in Christ. Let me grow beyond having to be fed like a baby on soft food and milk. May I strive for maturity so I will be able to digest solid food.

Keep me from being jealous and full of strife, from acting as mere human beings act - carnal!

Help me to understand the equality of all your servants, and not to put one above another, or to claim special discipleship to any!

Help me to see that it is not a question of who waters and who plants, for it is only you, God, who gives the increase.

In the name of Jesus. Amen.
