Bible Verse of the Week: 1 Corinthians 10:23

"'Everything is permissible'-but not everything is beneficial. 'Everything is permissible'-but not everything is constructive." 1 Corinthians 10:23
It is clearly stated here that everything is permitted. We are given permission to do anything we want. However, not everything is profitable. While many actions are lawful, how many of those things have good outcomes? People do so many things, but so many of them end regretfully. God grants us the permission and the ability to do whatever is pleasing to us, but He also makes it clear that a lot of pleasurable things are unedifying. As Christians, the Bible gives us discernment to know what is right and wrong. Therefore, we should guard our actions. Just because so many things are here for us to do, that does not mean that we have do to all of them! We should be using the Bible as a reference for our actions.~Jesselyn
