Two Ways to Glorify God

1 Corinthians 10:1-33

This rumination lab looks at Paul’s warning and exhortation to the Corinthians and we takeaway two ways in which all we do may glorify God both in the legitimate enjoyment of his gifts and in the sacrifice of our legitimate rights for the good of others in the cause of the gospel. What prize are we chasing…Protection of our rights or the glory of God?
