D. Stewards of the Mysteries of God
1. Faithful Servants of Christ
1 A man should 1account us 2in this way, as 3aservants of Christ and 4bstewards of the cmysteries of God.
2 1Here, furthermore, it is sought in stewards that one be found afaithful.
3 But to me it is a very small thing that I should be 1aexamined by you or by 2man's day; rather I do not even examine myself.
4 For I am conscious of nothing against myself; but I am not justified in this, but He who examines me is the Lord.
5 So then do not 1ajudge anything 2before the time, until the Lord bcomes, who will both bring to light the chidden things of darkness and make dmanifest the counsels of the hearts, and then there will be epraise to each from God.
