Have you ever been really excited about starting something new, only for it to leave a bitter taste in your mouth? Sometimes this could be the result of discontentment in the heart. Paul explains that contentment is not something that God magically anoints you with, but it’s something that's learned overtime.
Paul challenges several popular sayings of the day that were negatively influencing the Corinthians believers view of their bodies and sex. He then points them to the gospel, and how Christ purchased their bodies with his blood, showing how much God values their bodies.
