1 Corinthians 10:31 – So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. In this study, through the analogy of eating food that has been offered to idols, we will look at the meaning of glorifying God, and how faith, knowledge and freedom wouldn’t work without love.
Nehemiah 8:10 – Nehemiah said, “Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing prepared. This day is holy to our Lord.
