Reading for Tuesday, Oct 2: 2 Cor 11
Paul asks the Corinthians to bear with his foolishness (v1) as he gets a few things off his chest in this chapter. Read through it and see what sort of things Paul talks about.
I think it says something that Paul is wiling to be so transparent and honest with these believers he is mentoring and discipling. An example emerges for us — an example of the kind of relationships that make up the Kingdom of God: relationships built on trust, honesty, and mutual love to weather any adversity. How can this verse apply to some of your relationships this week?
In addition, Paul states that Satan and his minions often masquerade as angels of light (v14). This should put us on notice, reminding us that the evil one is always at work around us, maybe even in the places where we least expect him. But we trust in God, who is greater than any adversary, whether great or small.
