2 Corinthians 1:1,6 -- Therefore, since through God's mercy we have this ministry, we do not lose heart. For God, who said, "Let light shine out of darkness,"made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.

The second letter of Paul to the Corinthians is probably the least known of all his letters. It has sometimes been called "Paul's unknown letter." I do not know why that is. First Corinthians is very well-known among his writings, but many people feel that Second Corinthians is heavy reading. It is too bad that we are so unfamiliar with it, because it represents the most personal, the most autobiographical letter from the apostle's pen.

Why Does It Hurt So Much?  ( 2 Corinthians 1:1-7 )  Daily Devotion

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. (2 Corinthians 1:3-4)

The Sentence Of Death  ( 2 Corinthians 1:8-11 )  Daily Devotion

When You Are Misunderstood  ( 2 Corinthians 1:12-2:4 )  Daily Devotion

But as surely as God is faithful, our message to you is not Yes and No. For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you... was not Yes and No, but in him it has always been Yes. For no matter how many promises God has made, they are Yes in Christ. (2 Corinthians 1:18-20)

Our subject this morning is how to handle misunderstanding. I wish we could take time to ask how many of you are going through a time of being misunderstood, of having your motives misjudged and your actions misinterpreted, of experiencing something that you meant to be taken one way being taken in quite a different light. We have a classic case of a misunderstanding here, in Chapter 1 of Second Corinthians, that will help us in handling such matters.
