1 Corinthians 11-13
Observation: Take note that this famous passage on love is written in the context of using spiritual gifts in the church. Thus, we should pursue love first and desire to use spiritual gifts in love (see 1 Corinthians 14:1).
Question: Should women wear head coverings in church? This section seems to be a good example of how we have to think critically when reading the Bible. The lack of mention of this elsewhere suggests this was a cultural issue that does not still apply. At the same time there is a principle of submission pictured between Jesus and the Father that applies to wives and husbands. It communicates equality of personhood while expressing a variety of roles.
Application: I want to be faithful in using the gifts God has given me to glorify Him and bless others.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, I praise You for taking on human flesh to offer Your body and blood as a sacrifice to bring me to God.
