Christianity is not about me

1 Corinthians Bible Background

08.30.2017 New Testament: 1Co 10.23–24

To read the Bible in a year, read First Corinthians 10.14–33 on August 30, In the year of our Lord 2017

By Don Ruhl

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.
