My Mind is Unfruitful…

Paul’s central in concern in I Corinthians 14 is for intelligibility in the body. Un-interpreted tongues serve no purpose to the body at large. Charles Hodge sees the phrase “my mind is unfruitful” in 14:14 to mean that since his understanding/mind is not intelligible to others, thus, it does not benefit the body; it is unfruitful (Hodge, 253).
