Commentary:  Paul’s letters to the Corinth church addressed several specific problems that they were having.  Some they had written to him about, while others had reached his attention through alternative means.  We must keep in the mind the cultural context when reading these letters.  That does not mean we can ignore Paul’s advice.  Paul reminds us that our actions, whatever they may be, should honor and glorify the Lord.  We are to be separate from worldly rituals.  As Christians, we are all equal, no matter our position in the secular world, or the spiritual gifts given to us by the Lord.  Spiritual gifts are not status symbols.  We are not to take pride in them, nor are we to be ashamed of them.

Focus Verses: 12:12-13  What are these verses saying?  How can they be applied?  What is you part?
