Apparently some of the Corinthians were having problems getting along. These problems were signifact enough that they needed a court of law to decide who was in the right. I love what Paul says, “even to have such lawsuits with one another is a defeat for you. Why not just accept the injustice and leave it at that? Why not let yourselves be cheated?” They were bringing shame on the church because they weren’t mature enough to let stuff go. Maybe you were 100% in the right. SO WHAT? People will hurt you. People in the church will hurt you. Don’t find yourself always in the position of having to be right. One of the parties in the Corinthian lawsuits would be found right, but Paul said they had still lost. Accept the injustice and move on
