Wed 090722 pm 1 cor 11-13 Psa 52

1 Corinthians 11

11.1 imitators... This is a hard verse.
11.10 because of the angels... I'm not sure how often I think about what the angels are going to think about what I do. Interesting thought. Maybe I'll bring it up in a meeting sometime. :o)
11.22 despise the church of God and humiliate those who have nothing... This is something that is a real travesty (sometimes unintended) in churches that have more affluent saints. God has a special place in his heart for the poor saints and we should too. (Abraham Lincoln said: "God must have loved the common people, he made so many of them.")
11.34 so that when you come together it will not be for judgment... We think of church as always being good and a positive thing, like God is just happy that we will both to make it out. This seems to indicate that sometimes we might be better off staying home.
11.34 the other things... that God did not see fit to include in the Scriptures.

1 Corinthians 12

The word body is used at least 15 times in this chapter.
God has appointed is another theme.

1 Corinthians 13

13.4-8 Lots of not's in the definition.
13.13 faith, hope, love
It is interesting that there is not explicit mention of God in this chapter.

Psalm 52 David; 9 vs.; --??
Description of an evil man.

Doeg, the edomite... This guy was a scumbag.
52.7 sought refuge in his own destruction... Often characteristic of evil men and intentions.
