Are you using God’s Spirit to help you make wise decisions? It’s up to you whether you take advantage of the gifts that God offers. In my life, they are exactly what I need each and every day.
We must choose to live generously. When you are generous, you experience being "enriched in every way". If you live generously, someone else will get an opportunity to learn of and receive God’s generosity.

Sowing and reaping is one of the principles of life in the kingdom of God. But this sowing and reaping is to be done with a willing heart and with cheerful attitude. Sowing and reaping is a heart response to the grace of God that has been lavished upon us through Jesus Christ. It is an act of worship. We have the freedom to make choices, but we must remember that the choices we make have consequences. If we sow to the flesh, we reap corruption; if we sow to The Spirit, we reap life.

How do you respond if you are corrected of sinful or questionable behavior? What does the gospel teach us about repentance and reconciliation with God?

If we associate ourselves with “bad company,” our lives will reflect the negative influence they have on us. The opposite is also true; godly friends can have a positive influence on our character and actions. In friendships, as in other areas of life, our enemy's goal in spiritual warfare is to outwit us as believers. In all our relationships we need to be on guard against his schemes. If we fail to be alert or discerning about people, we will be drawn into the wrong kind of relationships, with the destructive or sinful effects.

There are glimpses of God’s new creation even in the struggling church at Corinth. God’s power
to rectify simply cannot be contained. For a world held captive to all manifestations of sin’s power – to fear, anxiety, social injustices, war, starvation, and exploitation – this is good news, indeed.
