FROM RIGHTS TO DOING RIGHT

Daily Devotional

“Knowledge makes you arrogant but love edifies. If anyone supposes that he knows anything, he has not yet known as he ought to know” (1 Corinthians 8:1b-2).

The bible was never intended to be a religious rule book; offering a prescriptive response to any situation. Not all scenarios can be reduced to moral and immoral determinations. What Paul offers is a guideline for making decisions that reflect our understanding of what it is to be a covenant people. Instead of one’s personal rights it is driven by love for the brethren and the desire to see them built up and not torn down.
