Entertaining Ourselves to Death by Anna Wood

I Corinthians 10: 31, “Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.”

(Lev. 13:47)  Anything in my habits or ways which mars happy fellowship with the brethren or robs me of power in service, is to be unsparingly judged and made an end of— ‘burned.’  (Lev.13:52)  Whatever I cannot do for God’s glory must be avoided.”—Arthur W.
