Paul summarises his thoughts at the end of this section on food sacrificed to idols. What strikes you as applicable to your life today?
* Gracious Lord God, may Your word be a lamp unto our feet today, a light unto our path.
“Let no one seek his own good, but the good of his neighbor.”
Again Paul hammers home the other-centered nature of life found in Jesus.
Making decisions to put aside our own rights as God’s people to help those around us.
“So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.”
Because HE is our center, our foundation, our lives are to be built on Him and Him alone.
And so the actions of working for the good of our neighbor bring glory to God.
This is a good thing!
Let us wrestle with what it means in our own lives to not seek our own good, but the good of those around us.
* Father God,
Thank You for Jesus, who shows us how to live as Your people.
Please help us be more and more like Him each day.
We love You Father God. Thank You for Your love and faithfulness.
