1 Corinthians 4:1-4 J.B. Phillips New Testament (PHILLIPS)
Trust us, but make no hasty judgments
4 1-4 You should look upon us as ministers of Christ, as trustees of the secrets of God. And it is a prime requisite in a trustee that he should prove worthy of his trust. But, as a matter of fact, it matters very little to me what you, or any man, thinks of me—I don’t even value my opinion of myself—but that doesn’t justify me before God. My only true judge is God himself.
