V. 1-2 Some were saying that Paul was "base" (or lowly) when he was with them. It is true that Paul was meek and gentle, because he was a follower of the Lord Jesus. But this does not mean that he overlooked sin, or passed over disobedience.
V. 5 The meek and gentle apostle speaking about obedience to the Word or God. He warns in strong language that we are never to allow our own thoughts or reasoning to question the Word of God. We bow gladly before the Word and walk in obedience to it, as Christ Himself did.
V. 6 Disobedience to the Word of God is never treated lightly. It is absolutely condemned, for the Lord has given us the power to obey His word.
V. 10 Notice the rude way that some of the believers spoke of Paul, "his bodily presence weak and his speech contemptible". And yet he loved them very much and tried to help and shepherd them.
V. 17 If he had boasted in himself, he would have been offended by their mocking, but instead he glorified in the Lord.
V. 18 Let us he careful that we serve and obey in quietness, and leave it to the Lord to commend.
