“All things are lawful,” but not all things are helpful. “All things are lawful,” but not all things build up. 1 Corinthians 10:23 ESV

http://bible.com/59/1co.10.23.ESV

Whatever does not advance, improve and promote other people or cause isn’t helpful. Our text reveals such though lawful, isn’t needful.

Beloved, life is a series of choices and daily we’re offered several options not bad but lawful and permissible which must not be chosen. Our canon or standard should always be how helpful the choice is to others, because like Jesus, we’re not called to live for ourselves but for others. Therefore, whatever doesn’t help build others up and add positively to their lives shouldn’t be an option for you, because it isn’t beneficial by God’s standard. Watch your choices today and always!

Grace upon grace

PRAYERS: Lord, may I never choose what’s not beneficial to others, build them up, and add up to their lives, no matter how appealing and attractive it is.
