1 Corinthians 3 1:1-4

And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ.

1 Corinthians 3:1-4

2
I fed you with milk, not solid food, for you were not ready for it. And even now you are not yet ready,
3
for you are still of the flesh. For while there is jealousy and strife among you, are you not of the flesh and behaving only in a human way?

According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it.

9
For we are God's fellow workers. You are God's field, God's building.
10
According to the grace of God given to me, like a skilled master builder I laid a foundation, and someone else is building upon it. Let each one take care how he builds upon it.
11
For no one can lay a foundation other than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
12
Now if anyone builds on the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw—
13
each one's work will become manifest, for the Day will disclose it, because it will be revealed by fire, and the fire will test what sort of work each one has done.
14
If the work that anyone has built on the foundation survives, he will receive a reward.

If anyone's work is burned up, he will suffer loss, though he himself will be saved, but only as through fire.

20
and again, “The Lord knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are futile.”

So let no one boast in men. For all things are yours,
