All things are lawful, but not all things are profitable. All things are lawful, but not all things edify. Let no one seek his own good, but that of his neighbor. 1 Corinthians 10:23-24
Following Christ changes the order of who is important and who gets my attention, energy, and service (my good). God is number one, then others, then me. Somehow I ended up at the back of the line.
How am I doing with the order of things? Am I joyful and resolved about the way my life is now ordered? Yes!
Lord, this is the good life. In faith I believe that Your ways work best. So joyfully I will follow what You have prescribed and planned.
