TODAY'S INSPIRATION FOR LIVING DEVOTION

 


IS IT BENEFICIAL?


Everyone is doing it, so why shouldn't I?"


Although the Corinthian Christians of his day felt they were allowed to do anything because of the freedom they had in Christ, the apostle Paul explained that everything they chose to do might not have been beneficial in helping them and others grow in their relationship with Christ. So he wrote them a letter and gave them a list of questions to consider before they chose to follow a specific course of action:


Is it against a specific command in scripture? (v.21-22)

Would it cause me to sin? (10:12)

Would it cause someone else to sin? (10:28,29)

Is it the best and most beneficial course of action? (10:23)

Am I thinking only of myself, or also about others? (10:24,33)

Does it glorify God? (10:31)


Source:: The above list was excerpted from commentary on I Corinthians 10;23- Making choices on Sensitive Issues found in the NLT translation Bible,  page 1817,


As we live in a culture that allows us to do or say anything, may we also measure our choices against Paul's list to help us decide how to make lifestyle decisions that not only please ourselves and others, but our heavenly father above.



Sharing the Word,




Jeaninne
