1 Corinthians 3:1-9
Brothers and sisters, I could not address you as people who live by the
Spirit but as people who are still worldly—mere infants in Christ. I
gave you milk, not solid food, for you were not yet ready for it. Indeed,
you are still not ready. You are still worldly. For since there is
jealousy and quarreling among you, are you not worldly? Are you not acting
like mere humans? For when one says, “I follow Paul,” and another,
“I follow Apollos,” are you not mere human beings?
What, after all, is Apollos? And what is Paul? Only servants, through whom
you came to believe—as the Lord has assigned to each his task. I
planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God has been making it grow.
So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only
God, who makes things grow. The one who plants and the one who
waters have one purpose, and they will each be rewarded according to their
own labor. For we are co-workers in God’s service; you are God’s field,
