Daily Reading – Psalms 69-71 / Romans 14
WHAT GOD HAS SAID:
Romans 14:1-3 Him that is weak in the faith receive ye, but not to doubtful disputations. For one believeth that he may eat all things: another, who is weak, eateth herbs. Let not him that eateth despise him that eateth not; and let not him which eateth not judge him that eateth: for God hath received him.
WHAT I HAVE SEEN:
As a young boy, if I wore dark-colored socks my feet would sweat and smell terrible. It was so bad that my sister caught me sleeping and sprayed Lysol on them. My dad had a similar issue and told me if I’d wear white socks, it would help. He was right, it did. So to this day, I wear white socks. Yet, how crazy would it be for me to tell everyone to wear white sock for them to be a good Christian. Socks, or any clothing for that matter will not determine a person’s salvation.
I think we should always do our best for the Lord, including with what we wear. However one persons best may be a lot different from another person’s best. God doesn’t look at the outward appearance, He looks at the heart.
WHAT DO YOU SAY:
Shouldn’t we try to do the same thing?
