2. THE QUALITY TEST. Is it good for me physically, emotionally, and spiritually (Rom. 12:9b)'
3. THE TEMPLE TEST. Can I do it when I remember my body is Gods temple and must not be marred or misused (1 Cor. 6:19)'
4. THE GLORY TEST. Will it glorify my Lord, or will it on the other hand possibly bring shame to His name (1 Cor. 6:20, 10:32)'
6. THE REPUTATION TEST. Is it apt to damage my testimony for the Lord (Phil. 2:15)'
7. THE CONSIDERATION TEST. Am I being considerate of others and the effect this might have on them (Rom. 14:7, 21)'
8. THE APPEARANCE TEST. Will it look bad? Does it have the appearance of what is wrong or suspicious (1 Thess. 5:22)'
9. THE WEIGHT TEST. Could this slacken or sidetrack me in running the Christian race (Heb. 12:1, 1 Cor. 9:24)'
10. THE COMING OF CHRIST TEST. Would I be ashamed to be found doing this when He comes again (1 John 2:28)'
“You are placed amidst the delightful liberties and resources of your Fathers home, without grudging and without doubt. But you are placed there not simply to enjoy, but to use; not only to be free, but to have the privilege of contributing to the freedom around you.
“You are freebut as a child of the Father, and as a member of the family. And such freedom would be only the harsh parody of itself if it were not a freedom, to love, to be loyal, to serve, to share. Your rights are given you as bright implements to promote the highest right. You are saved to be serviceable; you are saved to build up other lives. And not all things are serviceable. And not all things build up the lives of others.
“So live out the noble freedom of freely fulfilled mutual duty. Let no one seek his own, but everyone another.”
