Tutorial for first-timers


OT

6:25-30 As a result there was a great famine in the city. After a while even a donkey’s head sold for two pounds of silver, and a cup of dove’s dung cost about two ounces of silver. One day as the king of Israel was walking along the wall of the city, a woman called to him, “Please help me, my lord the king!” “If the LORD doesn’t help you, what can I do?” he retorted. “I have neither food nor wine to give you.” But then the king asked, “What is the matter?” She replied, “This woman proposed that we eat my son one day and her son the next. So we cooked my son and ate him. Then the next day I said, “Kill your son so we can eat him,” but she had hidden him. When the king heard this, he tore his clothes in despair. And as the king walked along the wall, the people could see that he was wearing sackcloth underneath next to his skin.

NT

5:9-11 When I wrote to you before, I told you not to associate with people who indulge in sexual sin. But I wasn’t talking about unbelievers who indulge in sexual sin, or who are greedy or are swindlers or idol worshipers. You would have to leave this world to avoid people like that. What I meant was that you are not to associate with anyone who claims to be a Christian yet indulges in sexual sin, or is greedy, or worships idols, or is abusive, or a drunkard, or a swindler. Don’t even eat with such people.

Perspective

Commerce, in the final stages of every society, is built on degrading people, demeaning and humiliating God’s premier creation – human beings
OC – Don’t slack off, even though your ministry is hidden
Abide (concentrate on) in Me
Limit myself and concentrate my affinities
