Verse of the Day – 1 Corinthians 10:23-24
“Everything is permissible” — but not everything is beneficial. “Everything is permissible” — but not everything is constructive. Nobody should seek his own good, but the good of others. — 1 Corinthians 10:23-24
Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
Freedom is a wonderful gift! Freedom in Christ is greater than any other kind of freedom. God entrusts it to us. But, we don’t want to use our freedom to impinge on someone else’s freedom. We don’t want our liberty to cause others to sin or to lose sight of Christ. So let’s use our freedom wisely and redemptively!
Precious God and Almighty Father, thank you for the very many gifts you have poured into my life. I want to especially thank you for my spiritual freedom. Empower me to use it to bless others and build them up, rather than bringing glory to myself. Please help me see others as the place of your work in the world. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
