We look to Christianity to see what is in it for us, but the Lord turns our attention to the Father and to others. Listen to the Spirit speak through Paul,
All things are lawful for me, but not all things are helpful; all things are lawful for me, but not all things edify. Let no one seek his own, but each one the other’s well-being (1 Corinthians 10.23–24).
Although as a Christian I have liberty, I am not to use that liberty in disregard of others. Therefore, I do not seek my own, but I seek the other person’s well-being.
