When you ask the question “Does it matter?” you are not simply asking if “it” (the choice) matters, but you are actually asking if the “consequence” matters. In many of our choices in this life, such as our choice of lunch or the car we drive, it really does not matter. The consequences are generally not significant and, if they are negative, can be changed with relative ease.
However, when it comes to faith-what we believe and practice-the question of “Does it matter?” is very important!
The only way that a Christian has of knowing whether it matters or not is by asking God if it matters to Him. What does God’s word say about the choice you are considering making? Only by understanding what God’s word says can you decide if “it” matters!
The Scriptures are both living and active and also able to train us into godliness. They also reprove us and correct us when we are wrong. (Heb 4:12 and 2 Tim 3:16-17)
Today’s lesson explored this question in more detail. Listen to it if you like but I encourage you to search the scriptures to see if it matters! (Acts 17:11)
