Christ's Servant, God's Steward

4 for I know nothing on myself. Yet I have not been made righteous in this, but he who appraises me is Lord. 5 Therefore do not judge anything before time, until the Lord comes who will both bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and make public the deliberations of the hearts. And then praise will come to each man from God. 6 Now these things, brothers, I applied to myself and Apollos for your sakes, so that in us ye might learn not to think above that which is written, so that ye may not be puffed up, one over the one against the other.
