1 Corinthians 10:27-30 Respect The Others 25 May 2024

1Co 10:27 If an unbeliever invites you to a meal, go if you want to,
and eat whatever is put before you; you need not ask questions of conscience first.
28 But if someone says to you,
'This food has been offered in sacrifice,'
do not eat it, out of consideration for the person that told you,
for conscience's sake -
29 not your own conscience, I mean,
but the other person's.
Why should my freedom be governed by somebody else's conscience?
30 Provided that I accept it with gratitude,
why should I be blamed for eating food for which I give thanks?

I am free in many things. It is however helpful to respect the conscience of other persons.


Saint Paul will come up with some reasons in the verses 31 and 32.


Jesus, guide me in refraining from my rights for the sake of love and wisdom.
