1 Corinthians 9:26 (a) There are those who seem to go through life like a butterfly. When the butterfly leaves the flower, you never can tell where it is going. It flies in an erratic way, here and there, and not "as the crow flies." Many people live the same way. They are in church one Sunday, and in the theater the next Sunday. They are for some kinds of religion, and also for some kinds of sin. They are headed nowhere, and make no progress in life. The exhortation in this passage is to have a godly and good goal in life, and make every effort to arrive at it.
1 Corinthians 14:8 (a) Here we see the picture of many preachers and teachers of the Bible. When they finish their message, you do not know what point they were making. They give no clear explanation of the Gospel, nor do they reveal GOD's truth about CHRIST. No wonder the people who listen to such preaching have no peace in their hearts, and no knowledge of GOD in their souls.
1 Timothy 6:17 (a) It has been proved many times that riches do not bring the peace and the blessing that was expected of them. One wealthy man who lost a great deal of money was asked, "Do you not worry about the money you have lost?" He answered, "No, it was my money that got me into trouble." Misery and money often go together.
