“Let us pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding.” (Romans 14:19)
Don’t tell others what to do, but you, live for Christ!
For somethings we must fight. We must shrug our shoulders about others. Wisdom is to know the difference between the two. An important principle is that we must chase after peace more than we chase after other people.
There are a hundred thousand little things that Christians disagree about. You can spend your life persuading others to your own point of view. And then you can wish for an eternity that you had occupied yourself with more useful things.
You do not have to judge your brother or sister about every little thing. After all, you are not to judge about that, but God instead. After all He doesn’t make such a hustle thereof.
Let the main purpose remain the main purpose. In the Kingdom of God, it is about righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit. And the rest? Nice to talk about every now and then, but not really worth it to worry about.
When you talk with others about your faith, does it feel more like ‘building up’ or more like ‘deviding’.100% Free Bible Course
