To Pierce or Not to Pierce

November 10, 2010

Toby Sumpter has written thoughtfully on the topic of nose piercings. Central to his thesis, I think, is this paragraph.

When it comes to certain cultural practices that are not required by God’s word, we should be glad to defer to love. Our calling is to love one another and to defer to one another. We are called to look for ways to be a blessing and an encouragement in the faith to one another. We are conspiring to bless. Which means having a keen awareness of the sorts of things that are sure to bless, sure to encourage faith and joy and good works, and being aware of those things that might be a blessing to some but not to others (though they may be perfectly moral in themselves).
