heart hiding, Scripture Memorization

Robbing Peter to Pay Paul {heart hiding 16/4}

Robbing Peter to Pay Paul {heart hiding 16/4}  Heart Hiding is hiding God’s Word in our heart by memorizing whole books of Scripture.  To read more go to the Heart Hiding page.

This is Week 4 of Heart Hiding, memorizing 2 Corinthians 11-13,  where we are memorizing  2 Corinthians chapter 11, verses 7 and 8:

7 Have I committed an offence in abasing myself that ye might be exalted, because I have preached to you the gospel of God freely?

8 I robbed other churches, taking wages of them, to do you service.

2 Corinthians 11:7-8

I didn’t do a search to see where the saying ‘Robbing Peter to pay Paul’ originated.  It’s just what comes to mind when I read these verses.  Paul went to great lengths to preach the gospel of God effectively to the Corinthians.  Paul did not literally rob other churches, but he was supported by them while he preached to the church of Corinth.  At least that’s what I interpret it to mean.

What have I sacrificed in order to share the gospel with the lost?
