Saturday's Thought

This came to be from 1 Corinthians 6, specifically verses 7, 12, and 19-20.

Even though everything is allowable for me to do, not everything is helpful and good for me to do. And for the sake of others, there are things that may be ok for me, but I need to let go of my right to do them so that I don't cause harm to others. I am not my own because Jesus purchased me. Now that sounds wonderful and all Biblical, but it's hard to let go of something that is "my right". What do I feel is "my right" to hang onto in my life that really isn't beneficial to myself, either for my sake or for others? What actions or what thoughts cause my life to be less than God wants it to be?
