Scripture at Sunrise 2.22.10

“But take care that this right of yours does not somehow become a stumbling block to the weak.”  -1 Corinthians 8:9

The right Paul addresses in 1 Corinthians 9 was his right to receive ministerial support.  Paul’s desire was to see people saved and following Christ, growing in grace and knowledge.  The Gospel always goes forth without a charge and he did not want to be a hindrance to the Gospel; therefore, he relinquished his freedom in Christ for the benefit of others.

Does your freedom in Christ cause others to stumble?  Do you use your freedoms to edify others or tear them down?
