It's a Small Thing

1 Corinthians 4:3-4 KJV
But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged of you, or of man's judgment: yea, I judge not mine own self.
For I know nothing by myself; yet am I not hereby justified: but he that judgeth me is the Lord.

Note the progression:
• First, Paul says it is a very small thing that he is judged of the Corinthians
• Second he says he does not judge himself but
• Third it is the Lord that judges him.

If a man keeps in perspective that he is ultimately judged of the Lord then those little judgments of men will become much less significant to him.
