Romans 14:1-23

Lord, help me to live with the knowledge that I will one day need to give an account of myself before the One Righteous Judge.

Let me not judge others--lest I myself be judged--and found wanting.

Let me not put a stumbling block in the path of anyone who is seeking You.

Let me take no pride in differentiating myself in what I eat or drink, or decline to eat or drink.

Let us all celebrate our God-given diversity. Let us hold our differences in the tension which only the Cross can unite.

Let us look ahead to that day when every knee shall bow, and every tongue confess, that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Amen.
