Why did Paul in 1 Corinthians 4:15 call himself 'your father', when Jesus says to call no man father in Matthew 23:9?

I Cor 4:15

Matthew 23:15

ESV - 15 Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you travel across sea and land to make a single proselyte, and when he becomes a proselyte, you make him twice as much a child of hell as yourselves.

I see "fathered" as different as different than "father". I could "mother" a child that I babysit, but I would not be that child's mother.
