As a follow-up on yesterday’s post about seeking the good of others, take a peek at the concluding words written in that same section of the letter to the Corinthians.
31 The answer is, if you eat or drink, or if you do anything, do it all for the glory of God. 32 Never do anything that might hurt others—Jews, Greeks, or God’s church— 33 just as I, also, try to please everybody in every way. I am not trying to do what is good for me but what is good for most people so they can be saved. 11 Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ. 1 Corinthians 10:31-11:1 (NCV)
There it is. Do everything for God’s glory, and follow the example of the writer, Paul, who is following the example of The Christ. You remember him? He’s the one who left heaven and come down to the Earth and became a man. Sort of a humbling experience I would imagine!
Let us be free! And let us bring glory to the Creator! and let us follow in his footsteps and seek others!
