Don’t Hold Other People to Your Rules

There are certain rules of and principles of general application that we should all follow.  But sometimes, God convicts us of some things for which He doesn’t seem to convict other people.  Some people think they should do nothing but pray on the Sabbath.  Others like to relax and watch football.  Some couples spend every moment of their lives together.  Others spend time apart here and there.  Don’t focus on them, focus on yourself, and how God is guiding you.  This is nothing new.  In Romans, the Apostle Paul tells believers not to worry about whether it’s right for other believers to eat meat or not, nor whether one day of the week should be considered holier than others, saying “One person considers one day more sacred than another; another considers every day alike. Each of them should be fully convinced in their own mind. Whoever regards one day as special does so to the Lord. Whoever eats meat does so to the Lord, for they give thanks to God; and whoever abstains does so to the Lord and gives thanks to God.” So don’t get hung up on things like this. Just focus on what God wants for and requires of you.
