Day 5: A Basic Principle to Choose By
I Corinthians 10:31, Romans 14:7-8
The Christian religion does not have a long list of do's and don'ts for you to follow, but rather a simple principle to follow. It is stated clearly in I Corinthians 10:31 NLT
"So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God."
Now read Romans 14:7-8 NLT
"For we don't live for ourselves or die for ourselves. If we live, it's to honor the Lord. And if we die, it's to honor the Lord. So whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord."
These verses make it clear we should
- have behavior that shows our new life with Christ
- do everything we do to bring glory to God
