“… for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.” – Romans 14:23
A man was in the back bedroom getting dressed. His wife was out in the living room talking with a friend. He yelled out, “Is this shirt clean enough for me to wear?” Without hesitation, she said “no” and went on talking.
After a while, he came out, buttoning up another shirt. He asked, “How did you know that shirt wasn’t clean without looking at it?” She said, “If you had to ask, it wasn’t.”
So many times we wonder whether a course of action is right or wrong. We’re not quite sure, so since we don’t know absolutely that it’s wrong, we do it anyway. But if we think it may be wrong, we should leave it alone until we’re sure that it’s right.
The old adage “When in doubt, don’t” is often a good course to follow. When faced with a choice, ask: “Will this gladden the heart of God or grieve Him? Pray today: “Lord, I want my heart to be grieved by those things that grieve Your heart and be gladdened with the things that give You joy.”
