What problem did Paul address in 1 Corinthians 1:10–13? How do divisions and contention affect our fellowship as disciples of Christ? (See Mosiah 18:21–22; 3 Nephi 11:29–30; D&C 38:27.) What did Paul counsel the Saints to do to be more unified? (See 1 Corinthians 1:10.)
Paul taught that God’s wisdom will “make foolish” the wisdom of the world (1 Corinthians 1:18–21). How is God’s wisdom different from the world’s wisdom? (See Isaiah 55:8–9; D&C 38:1–2.) What are some examples of God’s wisdom making foolish the wisdom of the world? How can we know the “things of God”? (See 1 Corinthians 2:10–13.)
Suggestion for Family Discussion
Explain that Paul often communicated with the members of the Church by sending epistles, or letters. Discuss some ways prophets, apostles, and other Church leaders communicate with us today. As a family, read a conference address from the Ensign or another Church publication. Discuss how you can apply its message.
