In his concluding comments, Paul addresses a lot of different people. All of those hard to pronounce names are things we could easily skip over…but each of them has a back story…and each of those people effect Paul in ways that could be considered painful. Think about what those ways may be. In the relationships you have in life, how do you manage the things that cause you pain. Does the fear of being hurt ever tempt you to avoid relationships…or even the community of the church?
Stuff to think about…stuff we’ll explore this Sunday. See you then!
