Your Rights vs. What is Right for You

1 corinthians 10 23

 Verse of the Day:  1 Corinthians 10:23

“I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but not everything is constructive.

You may be determined to demand your rights as a citizen of this country but it’s not always what’s best for you as a Christian. Just because you have the right to do something doesn’t necessarily mean it’s right for you. Though it may be lawful, it may not be beneficial to you as a Bible-believing follower of Christ. Do not let your rights become a stumbling block to others. Believers should waive what they have a right to when the peace and welfare of their fellow Christians require it (John Gill). Knowing the difference between your rights and what is right for you as a child of God comes with spiritual maturity and will help you to live according to God’s laws.

Your Rights vs. What is Right for You

Verse of the Day:  1 Corinthians 10:23

“I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but not everything is constructive.

 

Honestly, this is a hard lesson to learn for many, including myself. You may be determined to demand your rights as a citizen of this country but it’s not always what’s best for you as a Christian.  Just because you have the right to do something doesn’t necessarily mean it’s right for you.  Knowing the difference between your rights and what is right for you as a child of God comes with spiritual maturity.
