How Do You Receive Preachers?

Although Paul started the Corinthian Church, bringing the good news of salvation to the people there, they later had troubles accepting him. Therefore, he said to them, “I say again, let no one think me a fool. If otherwise, at least receive me as a fool, that I also may boast a little” (2 Corinthians 11:16).
Paul had the message of God. Therefore, Paul did not want anyone to think him a fool, lest they also think his message foolishness. However, if they insisted on thinking him a fool, then if they at least received him that was still good, for then they could hear the Holy Spirit-inspired message.
You may or may not like a preacher, but if he preaches the word of God, receive that preacher.
