1 Corinthians 9 - Key


But I keep under my body, and bring [it] into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.

Paul was a good example, in that he avoided being a hypocrite. While Paul was helping instruct others in the right way to go, he was making it an even higher priority to maintain self-control in his own life.


Galatians 6:1
Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.

Before I go talk to somebody that I have a conflict with, I'll pray, and I'll determine to just listen, peacefully. I'll make sure to be gracious and not respond the wrong way to them (angrily, arguing, etc.), even if they keep responding the wrong way to me.
