Paul, using the examples of differing opinions about food and days among the believers in Rome, teaches that Christians should not despise or judge others. He does not advise them to find a happy medium between the contending opinions or to average the two extremes in a compromise. On the contrary, he admonished them that "every one be fully convinced in his own mind" (Rom. 14:5), because God is able to make both stand, as both of them are serving the Lord in obedience to their individual convictions of His will. . . . Each of us has to find personally what is the will of God for his own life, and let all others meet their responsibility to do the same. . . . For God, by giving different commands to many, and putting them together according to His plan, shall accomplish ultimately His complete will.
