Verse of the Day – 1 Corinthians 8:8-9


Verse of the Day – 1 Corinthians 8:8-9
But food does not bring us near to God; we are no worse if we do not eat, and no better if we do. Be careful, however, that the exercise of your freedom does not become a stumbling block to the weak. — 1 Corinthians 8:8-9

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

We have incredible freedom under grace. However, our freedom never gives us the license to destroy a weak brother or sister’s walk with the Lord. Let’s use our freedom considerately, especially toward our new brothers and sisters in Christ. These new Christians need our encouragement; they already have enough stumbling blocks!

My Prayer…

God of all grace, please help me to be an encouragement and a good example to new Christians and those who are weak in their faith. Please, help me guard my life from being a bad example to others. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
