Have you ever written an email or text and had its meaning or tone misunderstood by the recipient? It is all too common. How about if your message was written with corrective language to get your point across? This is where we find Paul, as he is facing some accusations as to what kind of man he is, and how he has acted towards the church in Corinth. He defends himself in our passage, but what is most important for us to see is what motivates him to respond the way he does.
