13 For you were called to be free, brothers and sisters; only don’t use this freedom as an opportunity[a] for the flesh, but serve one another through love. (Galatians 5:13 CSB)
Life affords us many opportunities. We are free to pursue these opportunities but we should inspect our motives. Are we going after the opportunity purely for fleshly (self) reasons or is there something higher at work? Are we pursuing the opportunity because we fee it is in line with God’s plan for our lives.
Every opportunity needs to be gauged by this scale so that we know what we pursue is where God wants us.
