1 Corinthians 2:6-7 -- We do, however, speak a message of wisdom among the mature, but not the wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. No, we speak of God's secret wisdom, a wisdom that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began.

The First day of the Week  ( 1 Corinthians 16:1-9 )  Daily Devotion

Now about the collection for the Lord's people: Do what I told the Galatian churches to do. On the first day of every week, each one of you should set aside a sum of money in keeping with your income, saving it up, so that when I come no collections will have to be made. Then, when I arrive, I will give letters of introduction to the men you approve and send them with your gift to Jerusalem. If it seems advisable for me to go also, they will accompany me. 1 Corinthians 16:2-4

We have now come to the 16th and last chapter of First Corinthians. In previous chapters we have covered the great issues of this letter and they have all been faced and settled. First, the "carnalities," the things the Apostle Paul saw needed correction in Corinth, as they still need correction in California. All these terrible things that were dividing this church and keeping it from making an impact on Corinth were dealt with in the first eleven chapters of this letter.

The place to begin with any doctrinal matter in the New Testament is with Jesus' clear and simple commands, since these have the force of injunction to any heart that is subject to him. He said, "Lay not up for yourselves treasures on earth but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven," (Matthew 6:19-20). He also said, "make friends for yourselves by means of unrighteous mammon, so that when it fails they [those friends] may welcome you into the eternal habitations," (Luke 16:9 RSV).
