Food for Thought



Holiness calls me to live by faith, not by sight. Because God gives us principles rather than specific rules for living a holy life, his kingdom can be lived in some measure here on earth in all generations, in all cultures, in all times. How these eternal principles are applied will look different in each circumstance, but God's principles never change. One person may be a vegetarian, for example, while another eats meat, yet both honor God (Romans 14:2-3). To live a holy life means I must constantly go back to God for direction on how to live out these principles.

Comments

As a the founder of a women's organization, I often find myself in discussions of which I have little (or no) response; particularly discussions on personal preferences.

A while back, I received some very good advice:

Preach the gospel not your personal convictions.

That simple statement penetrated within me and helped clarify why I sometimes feel "unease" in certain discussions.

It's certainly easier said than done but it's a valid measuring tool for individuals in positions of influence.
