Hepful questions to determine if an action is good to do.

     I like these guidelines which I found in an article by Gary Curtis.  They are very helpful in determining if an action is right and good to do, or if it would be harmful to our lives and those who are following our example.

  1. Profit (1 Cor. 6:12): Is it good for me? Will it add a plus quality to my life?
  2. Control (1 Cor. 6:12): Will it get control of me, or will it lessen Christ's control of me?
  3. Ownership (1 Cor. 6:19-20): As God's property, can I justify this activity?
  4. Influence (1 Cor. 8:9, 12-13): Could this action negatively influence any of my believing friends?
  5. Testimony (Col. 4:5): How will my testimony be affected if I participate in this activity?
  6. Thanksgiving (1 Thess. 5:18): When I come home from this activity, can I thank God for it with a clear conscience?
