“All things are lawful,” but not all things are helpful. “All things are lawful,” but not all things build up. Let no one seek his own good, but the good of his neighbor. (1 Corinthians 10:23-24 ESV)
Все мне позволительно, но не все полезно; все мне позволительно, но не все назидает. Никто не ищи своего, но каждый пользы другого. (1-е Коринфянам 10:23-24 Russian)
Most holy and awesome God, our dear Father in heaven ~ thank you, Lord, for the amazing grace and mercy that comes daily without prejudice to all creation. Grant us wisdom to more fully grasp the freedom of conscience that is inherent in all followers of Christ. Help us to be engaged each day in thinking about and working for the betterment of our friends and neighbors instead of selfishly wasting valuable time on spoiling ourselves. We pray and wait for your help in the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
