Perspective

Read Romans 14.13-18

“.. the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit ..” (Rom.14.17)

“There are many doctrines of a less essential nature with regard to which the most sincere children of God are and have been divided for many ages. In these, we may think and let think” (John Wesley). Concentrate on the ‘primary’ matters!

What in your living which might constitute a ‘stumbling block’ to others?

Do you tend to ‘stand on your rights’, rather than put yourself out for others?

Prayer: Keep me, Lord, from being so preoccupied with my own concerns today that I am careless of the needs and feelings of those around me.
