Everything is God’s, given to us to enjoy with thanks and honor to him. Therefore, everything is given by God to be used in worship to him. When we exchange the truth of God for a lie and worship and serve created things instead of God it is sin.
Regarding 1 Corinthians 10:31, John Piper wrote, “It is sin to eat or drink or do anything NOT for the glory of God. In other words, sin is not just a list of harmful things (killing, stealing, etc.). Sin is leaving God out of account in the ordinary affairs of your life. Sin is anything you do that you don’t do for the glory of God.”
