I Corinthians 6
20 While working with the Jews, I live like a Jew in order to win them; and even though I myself am not subject to the Law of Moses...
(When working with kids, I do kid things in order to win them over, even though I myself am not a kid. )
21 In the same way, when working with Gentiles, I live like a Gentile...
So I become all things to all people, that I may save some of them by whatever means are possible.
23 All this I do for the gospel's sake, in order to share in its blessings.
24 When runners take part in a race -it is to win the prize.
When you run, run in such a way as to win the prize.
(When you teach, teach in such a way that helps your students learn best.)
(When you organize, do so in a way that actually accomplishes your objectives.)
(Don't "just do it" or, "just do something" or, "do what we've always done" Do what it takes to win this race.)
2 Suddenly there was a noise from the sky which sounded like a strong wind blowing, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 Then they saw what looked like tongues of fire which spread out and touched each person there. 4 They were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to talk in other languages, as the Spirit enabled them to speak.
5 ...a large crowd gathered. They were all excited, because all of them heard the believers talking in their own languages.
(then Peter said) These people are not drunk, as you suppose; it is only nine o'clock in the morning. 16 Instead, this is what the prophet Joel spoke about: 17 "This is what I will do in the last days, God says: I will pour out my Spirit on everyone. Your sons and daughters will proclaim my message; your young men will see visions, and your old men will have dreams.
Paul's early attempt at describing multiple-intelligence learning...
I Cor 12: 14 For the body itself is not made up of only one part, but of many parts. 15 If the foot were to say, "Because I am not a hand, I don't belong to the body," that would not keep it from being a part of the body. 16 And if the ear were to say, "Because I am not an eye, I don't belong to the body," that would not keep it from being a part of the body. 17 If the whole body were just an eye, how could it hear? And if it were only an ear, how could it smell? 18 As it is, however, God put every different part in the body just as he wanted it to be. 19 There would not be a body if it were all only one part! 20 As it is, there are many parts but one body. 21 So then, the eye cannot say to the hand, "I don't need you!" Nor can the head say to the feet, "Well, I don't need you!"
26 If one part of the body suffers, all the other parts suffer with it; if one part is praised, all the other parts share its happiness.
