vv. 3-16 A lesson in submission

While woman must submit to man, man must also submit to God.
-So God is the ultimate authority
We shouldn't be so focussed on who follows who, but on following God and submitting to His commands.

A man who speaks to God without respect shames both himself and Christ.
A woman who speaks to God without respect shames both herself and her husband.
[If single, does it follow the same pattern as a man?] Yes. Woman submits to God, whether or not she has a husband.

vv. 20-34 Giving Christ the respect He deserves.

Greed and one-up-manship in the Corinthian church resulted in sickness and death. Paul was trying to realign them with the Truth and called them out on their gluttony and greed. He reminded them of what the Lord's Supper symbolised, and how what they were doing was showing Him the gravest disrespect.
He also wanted to get these things worked out in this life so that judgement wouldn't come later on.

Get your house in order.
