Key verse: A SIMPLE PRINCIPLE
“All things are lawful for me, but not all things are helpful. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be dominated by anything.”6:12
Prayer: 1 Corinthians 6:12 Challenges Us to Live Differently
God, we pray that you would help us to live this way. To ask all these questions. Yes to ask what is lawful for us? We want to live according to your law, according to your word, and where it says to do something or not do something, we want to obey. And as we ask that question, we pray that you would help us to then ask, is it beneficial for us? And not just for us personally, but it is a benefit for us to do for the sake of others? For others’ good. Does it bring good to others, good to me, glory to you?Radical.net
We pray that these would be our driving motivations. What brings the most glory to you? What is best for others? And what is good for us? God, please help us. Help us to live wisely according to your law, to live beneficially according to your law. Today, all day long, help us to make decisions that are beneficial. We pray. Beneficial for others, beneficial, yes for us, because we trust that life is found according to your word and loving our neighbors as ourselves and ultimately help us to live today for that which is most beneficial to your glory. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
