We try to live in such a way that no one will ever be offended or kept back from finding the Lord by the way we act, so that no one can find fault with us and blame it on the Lord. (2 Corinthians 6:3)
Paul who tried to live in such a way to not offend anyone yet seemed to have offended multitudes. There are books, sites, and cults formed to simply dispute Paul’s authority as an apostle.
It’s one thing to love and another to please with pressure,
It’s is one thing to be patience but another to tolerate abuse,
It’s one thing to be in tribulations but another to tolerate tyranny,
It’s one thing to be in need another to be lazy,
It’s one thing to be in distresses for gospel but another to panic about everything,
It’s one think to live in such a way to not offend anyone, and another to compromise our convictions, confine ourselves to this world and its popular patterns.
So, my friend, for Christ’s sake live an authentic and humble life, but for anything else live a life with dignity, confidence, clarity, and without compromise. After all, God considered you worthy enough to save, with His own blood and life.
