Fourth Sunday of Advent 2015 – 1 Corinthians 8:12-13

Friday, January 30, 2015

1 Corinthians 8:12-13But when you thus sin against members of your family, and wound their conscience when it is weak, you sin against Christ.  Therefore, if food is a cause of their falling, I will never eat meat, so that I may not cause one of them to fall.

In these verses Paul notes the heart of his message on the eating of food offered to idols – do not act in ways that might hurt the faith of those around you.  People may not have the understanding you have…people may not believe the way you believe, but their faith is precious to God.

Everlasting God, help us to remember that we live in community with one another and all of us are your children.  Amen.
