Sincerity in Ministry

(Commenting on 2 Cor 4:2) The temptation was often yielded to then as now, to put the best apples on top of the barrel, the best strawberries on top of the basket. The Judaizers made a plausible plea and show. Paul, in contrast, grounds his confidence on two reasons. One is his sincerity. His berries are as good at the bottom as at the top.

–A. T. Robertson, The Glory of the Ministry, p. 47.
