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.

Different Task, Same Goal

Acts 20 24

 

Verse of the Day:  Acts 20:24

However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.

 

God has given each of us different gifts to be used for His purpose.  We should be content with what we’ve been given and use these gifts to the best of our ability. We each may have a different task but the goal is the same for all of us, to finish the race and to complete the task we’ve been assigned.

Grow in Wisdom

Proverbs 1 5

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 1:5

The wise hear them and grow in wisdom; those with understanding gain guidance.

 

Solomon asked God to give him wisdom and understanding and it pleased the Lord, so He gave him wisdom and understanding beyond measure. The Book of Proverbs was written to guide people in how they should live their lives.  Some say the Book of Proverbs doesn’t apply to today’s times, but it is as relevant now as it was then because God’s word is the same yesterday, today and forever.   Learning is a life-long journey, even the wise can gain wisdom.
