“14 Do all things without complaining or bickering with each other, 15 so you will be found innocent and blameless; you are God’s children called to live without a single stain on your reputations among this perverted and crooked generation. Shine like stars across the land.” Philippians 2:14-15
Our behavior is a demonstration of how we honor God’s ways. It’s not about perfection. It is about a demonstration of our love for our Father. It’s not about performance. It’s about our hearts desire to be like Him and operate in His ways. It is a way to honor our Father. When we take care not to give offense or take offense – to God, fellow Christians, or others – we honor His sanctification of our sin. When we shine like stars, we can be a reflection of His love!
Philippians 2:3, James 5:9, 1 Peter 4:9, Proverbs 13:10
