"What, after all, is Apollos? And what is Paul? Only servants, through whom you came to believe—as the Lord has assigned to each his task. I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God has been making it grow. So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow." – 1 Corinthians 3:5-7 (NIV)
Thoughts: Who is Apollos? Haven't heard that story yet... But everything else that was said makes sense. So often people try to do great things to gain credit, attention, and popularity for themselves. Really everything you do should go towards honoring God -since it is through Him that you have the life you live in the first place. Everything you do and everything you are come from Him ultimately. And in the example given -Water and Soil are also things that God created that make the plant grow so really man is just the helper of bringing about great things.
