Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise,
– Ephesians 5:15
As Christians, as well as to the new ones, we have a lot of questions about how we should live this life according to the Word.
Some of the questions that we frequently asked:
- Is smoking is a sin?
- Does having a girlfriend/boyfriend a sin?
- Is homosexuality a sin?
- And the list goes on and on…
As what was Paul written on Ephesians, we must be very careful on how we live. By what? By living WISELY. Okay, what do I mean? Simple: Everything is permissable but not everything is beneficial. For example, smoking. Yes, there’s no Scripture saying that it is a sin, but the question is: Is smoking will benefit you? And here’s one of the most controversial issue today: Homosexuality. Yes, there’s no Scripture saying that being a member of LGBT is a sin. Here’s another question: Where that feeling will lead you?
Living wisely is one of the ways how can we live pleasing to God. And it takes wisdom for us to live this life. But how can we live wisely? Again, simple: GO BACK TO THE WORD. Because in there you will know all the things that you need to know on how you will live this life wisely and pleasing to the eyes of God.
Then you will understand what is right and just and fair—every good path. For wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul. Discretion will protect you, and understanding will guard you.
– Proverbs 2:9-11
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
– 2 Timothy 3:16-17
