Day 18 – The Weak and the Strong

Read it: Romans 14:1-15:4

Live it: This passage can be summarized this way: Don’t do anything that will cause a Christian brother to fall into or turn to a life of sin.

What may be a perfectly acceptable behavior to you may be a sin to someone else because he/she cannot engage in that activity with a clear conscience. We must be careful to avoid offending others. Remember that every Christian is at the same level of maturity, and we must watch out for each other.

Especially take note of verse 15:1: “We who are strong must be considerate of those who are sensitive about things like this.” Be careful. Love your brothers and sisters in the Lord enough to forgo some activity, food, entertainment, etc. if it may give offense to someone.

-Ps. Rod
