1 Corinthians 3:18-23: “Let no one deceive himself. If anyone among you seems to be wise in this age, let him become a fool that he may become wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written – Job 5:13 ‘He catches the wise in their own craftiness’ and again in Ps 94 – ‘the Lord knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are futile.’ Therefore let no one boast in men. For all things are yours; whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas, or the world or life or death, or things present or things to come – all are yours. And you are Christ’s, and Christ is God’s.”
The wisdom of this world does not coincide with God’s wisdom. Everything God has done in the church and the universe benefits all believers. There is no place for foolish boasting or competition among Christians.
