Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law?
What a minister does on his day off is his business Reverend Gray was fuming. Members of his church had seen him go into a casino and bar on his day off, and now the entire congregation was in an uproar. He liked to fraternize with some regulars at the casino; old friends from college days. There was nothing wrong with getting together with old friends, and if a couple of coins hit the slots, what was the harm? It was nobody's business but his own.
We need to be careful how we walk in our Christian lives. We are examples to others of how Christ wants His people to be. That is the big responsibility, and one that we must take very seriously. Our business becomes the business of other people when it could possibly affect their faith. Who we associate with matters very much to who we want to be. It is good to remember that not only God watches the faithful.
Prayer: If I am to be an example of what it means to follow Christ, then help me to be the best example I can be. Guide me by Your Spirit. Amen.
