Four questions you ought to ask yourself
I like sharing my notes from sermons that speak to my spirit. Pastor Ed Young, Winning Walk, always preaches without sugarcoating God’s word.
God's word provides answers when we check it. We should all ask these questions anytime we need to make a decision.
Is this beneficial?
Is this addictive?
1 Corinthians 6:12 TLB
I can do anything I want to if Christ has not said no,[a] but some of these things aren’t good for me. Even if I am allowed to do them, I’ll refuse to if I think they might get such a grip on me that I can’t easily stop when I want to.
Does it hurt others?
1 Corinthians 8:13 NCV
So if the food I eat causes them to fall into sin, I will never eat meat again so that I will not cause any of them to sin.
Does it give glory to God?
1 Corinthians 10:31 NCV
The answer is, if you eat or drink, or if you do anything, do it all for the glory of God.
