Scripture: But food does not bring us near to God; we are no worse if we do not eat, and no better if we do. Be careful, however, that the exercise of your freedom does not become a stumbling block to the weak. 1 Corinthians 8:8,9 NIV
Observation: Paul teaches about food sacrificed to idols and how consuming it may affect another’s belief.
Application: Paul teaches us that even though what we eat does not determine our eternal fate, what we eat or do or how we act may cause another person to sin. We must be sensitive to the unbelievers and immature believers around us.
Prayer: Father, help me to be aware of how my words and actions affect others. I ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen
