When one of you says, "I'm on Paul's side," and another says, "I'm for Apollos," aren't you being totally infantile?
Who do you think Paul is, anyway? Or Apollos, for that matter? Servants, both of us - servants who waited on you as you gradually learned to entrust your lives to our mutual Master. We each carried out our servant assignment.
I planted the seed, Apollos watered the plants, but God made you grow.
