The Other’s Well-Being

 

Let me not seek
just my own good

but think of the well being
of others

knowing what may be
okay for me

won’t always edify my
sisters and brothers.

**********

I can put others first because You are with me.

“All things are lawful for me, but all things are not helpful; all things are lawful for me, but all things do not edify.”

“Let no one seek his own, but each one the other’s well-being.”

1 Corinthians 10:23,24 NKJV

Lawful To Do Good

“Therefore it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath.”  Matthew 12:12 NKJV

“Then He said to the man, ‘Stretch out your hand.’  And he stretched it out, and it was restored as whole as the other.”  Matthew 12:13 NKJV

“Then the Pharisees went out and took counsel against Him, how they might destroy Him.”  Matthew 12:14 NKJV

“But when Jesus knew it, He withdrew from there; and great multitudes followed Him, and He healed them all.”  Matthew 12:15  NKJV

Jesus withdrew from that area, but not from healing on the Sabbath.

Thank You, Jesus, for being Lord of the Sabbath and Healer of all.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Lord, if I do good
in Your name
and am hated
for it

please give me wisdom
to continue
and not withdraw
from it.

God bless you as you continue in His name.
