1 Corinthians 3:1–9

Foundations for Living

1 And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to aspiritual men, but as to bmen of flesh, as to cinfants in Christ.

2 I gave you amilk to drink, not solid food; for you bwere not yet able to receive it. Indeed, even now you are not yet able,

3 for you are still fleshly. For since there is ajealousy and strife among you, are you not fleshly, and are you not walking 1blike mere men?

4 For when aone says, “I am of Paul,” and another, “I am of Apollos,” are you not mere bmen?

5 What then is Apollos? And what is Paul? aServants through whom you believed, even bas the Lord gave opportunity to each one.

6 aI planted, bApollos watered, but cGod was causing the growth.

7 So then neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but God who causes the growth.

8 Now he who plants and he who waters are one; but each will areceive his own 1reward according to his own labor.

9 For we are God’s afellow workers; you are God’s 1bfield, God’s cbuilding.
