2 Corinthians 12:11-21
v11-19: A faithful minister of the gospel is not after the money of those they serve but is seeking to win them for Christ. They are willing to suffer loss for their good, using their “time, gifts, strength, privileges,” their all, to serve them in any way. Even if those they serve are unkind or show ingratitude toward them, their love for them will not lessen.
v20-21: There are some sins that are sadly too common amongst God’s people. These include quarrelling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, factions, slander, gossip, arrogance, and disorder. Those guilty of committing these sins are to be rebuked (privately, and when necessary, publicly) and are to respond in repentance.
