Freedom and Others

When deciding how to use your freedom, sometimes it’s a choice between what you want to do and what you know God wants you to do.

Consider these guidelines:

  • Edify vs. Gratify: Use your freedom to build up others rather than satisfy yourself  (1Cor 8:1).
  • Others vs. Self: Give up something for the sake of others (1Cor 8:13, and Php 2:3-4).
  • Liberty vs. Legalism: Others’ welfare should be your first concern, but their standards do not rule you (1Cor 7:22 and Gal 5:1).
