an important question

 A few nights ago, I had a dream & woke up at 2:30am with 1 Cor 6:12 on my mind.  Not knowing that the verse said, I got up & checked it out.  It talks about things that are permitted but not profitable & about not being mastered by anything, save Christ.  From this experience, I’ve been thinking about many of the activities in my life & I’ve been kind of taking an inventory of things I permit versus things that are profitable.  We can allow lots of things, events, activities, etc in our lives & they may not be harmful.  But the real question to ask is if such things are profitable & profitable not only to ourselves, but more importantly, profitable to the kingdom of God.  Let’s be mindful, with the help of the Holy Spirit, to keep our lives as profitable as possible for God’s kingdom.

The operative question:  is this profitable?  🙂
