How does your day begin, my brother? What fills your day, my sister? Do you start your day with good things? Is your day filled with good things? Are these good things profitable? There is a most important difference.
The Greek word for “things,” as used in this verse, is pas (pr. pas), which are “all, any, every” (Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance). Before we get too far into today’s study, I feel impressed in my spirit to clarify a point: the Apostle Paul is not saying that all things are lawful, he is saying all things that are lawful. Not everything is lawful. God does not want His children to twist this verse to justify sinning. Again, Paul is referring to all things that are within the law.
