“Some of you say, “We can do whatever we want to!”
But I tell you that not everything may be good or helpful.”
1 Corinthians 10:23, CEV
Just because we CAN do something, does not mean its a good idea. Seriously. I should have learned this lesson in life already.
In Chapter 1 of Made to Crave, author Lysa Terkeurst brings up the very good point brought to our attention by 1 Corinthians 10:23, just because something is permissible, does not make it beneficial! Just because I CAN eat an entire pint of that java chip ice cream, does not make it good for my body. Just because I CAN sit at home in bed all day and get no exercise whatsoever, does not make it good for my body. Just because I CAN ignore my Bible and go on facebook instead, does not make it good for my soul.
Praying that every time I try to do something just because I CAN, that this token from God’s Word will come to mind.
