You Are Here
“Only, as the Lord has assigned to each one, as God has called each, in this manner let him walk. And so I direct in all the churches.” (1 Corinthians 7:17)
We often think that if our circumstances changed, we would begin to serve the Lord better. There is a tendency to blame our environment for our faithfulness, yet typically, that is not the leading factor. God called you here, and here is your assigned position – your assignment. Be faithful here instead of imagining how faithful you would be if you were somewhere else.

- How does our reading show Paul’s people skills, especially how he handles conflict?
- What in this passage would change the lives of the believer(s) being addressed? How does it make me a better disciple?
