Romans 14:3

3 He who eats, let him 1not despise him who does not eat; and he who does not eat, let him 1not judge him who eats, for 2God has received him.

31 Concerning the receiving of the believers, Paul used eating (vv. 2-3) and the keeping of days (vv. 5-6) as examples. God's receiving has nothing to do with what we eat or with our keeping of certain days. These are minor, secondary matters that have nothing to do with our salvation and basic faith. Therefore, we should not despise or judge others in these things.
