“Do Whatever Makes You Happy”

March 21, 2015

Romans 14:7-8

For none of us lives to himself, and no one dies to himself. For if we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. Therefore, whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s.

Have you ever been told or even said the famous cliché saying of our day: “Do whatever makes you happy”? I’m pretty confident that we all have at least heard this.

Let’s just keep this short and sweet…this saying could not be farther from the biblical truth of God’s Word. Do whatever makes YOU happy is a selfishness.

Is there some truth behind this saying? Absolutely!

The problem is, this saying is not completely truthful. When we do what makes us happy we are walking down a path of selfishness. Your actions may be good, there may be some temporarily good fruit. However at the root of all this is selfishness.

As Christians, Christ must be at the center, not good ole ME.

This verse tells me, if I am going to do anything make sure Christ is at the center.

In all honesty sometimes that is hard to tell, so I just make sure I am not at the center!

 

Grace and Peace
