I was looking over some notes I took back in May from our Sunday School class on I Corinthians 10:23-33.
Verse 23 says, “All things are lawful for me, but not all things are helpful; all things are lawful for me, but not all things edify.”
Sometimes I need to distinguish between good and better. Sometimes I must chose NOT to do something, not because of MY conscience, but because of the conscience of the other person.
The messages I took away that day were these:
- Don’t ask, “What can I get away with?”, but “How can I best glorify God?”
- Love God, love your neighbor.
This is just a small reminder to myself.
