Even as I also endeavour to please all men in all things, not seeking my own advantage, but that of many, that they may be saved.
Let no one seek his own only, but every one another's benefit.
I extol my office, that if possible I may excite to emulation my brethren according to the flesh, and may save some of them:
but let every one of us please our neighbor for his good, to his edification.
For though I am free from all, yet I have made myself a servant to all, that I might gain the more.
that which besets me daily, the care of all the churches.
Do ye then think that we are making apologies to you? No, we speak before God in Christ: and all, my beloved, for your edification.
For do I now persuade you to obey men or God? Or do I seek to please men? if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.
