This week we are looking at what I’ve numbered as the 17-19 (out of 22) commandments/guidelines Paul lists on how to live our lives worthy of the gospel. 1 Thessalonians 5:11:25

(17) test everything; and (18) hold fast to what it good (19) Abstain from every form of evil. (Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is faithful; he will surely do it.)  

Recently, my daughter and I were doing a little back to school shopping. We went through the entire girl’s section and grabbed everything that looked cute or that we thought would look cute on. (We like to have fashion shows in the dressing room.) We ended up with over 16 items and headed into the dressing room. After trying each piece on and deciding “it’s to small, to low cut, just right or not cute enough to pay full price for.” we ended up buying only six of the items. Like most things we purchase, we want to try them out, get a recommendation, do a background check or read the reviews before we buy it. If we don’t, we make sure the store has a good return policy.

We need to be smart shoppers in our Christian lives too.
