Maturing christians see disagreement as an opportunity to prove their love, not to prove their point. #pilgrimpath
Romans 14:1-12 (MEV)
1Welcome him who is weak in faith, but not for the purpose of arguing over opinions. 2For one has faith to eat all things, but he who is weak eats only vegetables. 3Do not let him who eats despise him who does not eat, and do not let him who does not eat judge him who eats, for God has welcomed him. 4Who are you to judge another man’s servant? To his own master he stands or falls. And he will stand, for God is able to make him stand.
5One man judges one day above another; another judges every day alike. Let each one be fully persuaded in his own mind. 6He who observes the day observes it for the Lord, and he who does not observe the day, to the Lord he does not observe it. He who eats, eats in honor of the Lord, for he gives thanks to God; and the one who does not eat, in honor of the Lord he does not eat, and gives thanks to God. 7For none of us lives for himself, and no one dies for himself. 8For if we live, we live for the Lord. And if we die, we die for the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s. 9For to this end Christ died and rose and lived again, so that He might be Lord of both the dead and living.
10So why do you judge your brother? Or why do you despise your brother? For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ. 11For it is written:
“As I live, says the Lord,
every knee shall bow to Me,
and every tongue shall confess to God.”
12So then each of us shall give an account of himself to God.
