Paul expresses here in these verses a selfless approach to the Corinthian believers. Paul acted with integrity and sincerity, relying upon the grace of God, to help these believers understand what the Christian life looked like. And all of this was in order that Paul can ultimately boast of their faith and progress to God on the day of the Lord Jesus.

Paul lived constantly aware of his impact upon, and example for, those around him. Indeed, he lived to be a boaster on behalf of other people. Boasting about their faith, growth, and progress in God. As such, he laboured and strove for their progress and their faith. God is showing me an example that I am called to follow, especially with the constant temptation in our world today to promote self at the expense of everyone else.

Help me, Lord, be a boaster in the growth, progress, and faith of other people. As such, help me to be an example of growth and progress they can follow, help me inspire and activate that growth in them, so that on the day you return, I will have a worthy boast – not in myself or my achievements, but in being used by you to stir the growth and faith of those around me.
