After months of takeaway coffees outside ….. today we get the choice to sit inside! Choice is a complicated thing. It comes with tremendous responsibility. When I make a choice ….. it’s not just about me. It’s about those around me who might make different choices. Does my choice cause offence to them? If so ….. do I adapt my choice ….. or do I expect them to? Freedom of choice is not about getting my way ….. it’s being free to choose what is right. As all parents know ….. sometimes choices have to be made that are not very popular. As we move on from here ….. let’s consider one another. The funny thing is ….. I still prefer to take my coffee outside in the sun! But that might change in the coming months!
‘And if another believer is distressed by what you eat, you are not acting in love if you eat it. Don’t let your eating ruin someone for whom Christ died.’
Dear Lord, Thank you for the freedom to choose ….. but help me choose what is right and loving. In Jesus Name, Amen.
