1 Corinthians 10:23-24

"All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not.
Let no man seek his own, but every man another’s wealth."
1 Corinthians 10:23-24

This is interesting because it emphasizes freedom, which God has given us, but shows us how to focus our choices.  Even if we are within the bounds of societal law, and God's law, we still have a lot of freedom... but things to think about include whether our choices are edifying, whether they are expedient, and whether they are being used for the benefit of others and not ourselves.  Those are really good guidelines. :)  If we stop thinking about ourselves, our choices become SO different.  Let's take a stab at that today... seeking other people's wealth and happiness rather than our own.  Making choices that are expedient and which edify.  Should be interesting, and enlightening. :)
