1 Corinthians 6.12 – September 11, 2020

1 Corinthians 6:12

“I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but I will not be mastered by anything.  (1 Corinthians 6:12, NIV)

 

“Reminder to me that just because its OK to have things, does not mean its helpful to me.”

Thought Questions:

In what ways does our culture condition us to believe everything is within our right to do or to have? Where does this idea come from?

What are things you can think of that you would consider good, but not necessarily beneficial?

How does focusing on following Jesus change your perspective of what you have a “right” to do or have?
