How about this: The Law of Spiritual Interpretation: Always seek the Lord for a Spiritual Interpretation of scripture. Remember that there may be more than one correct interpretation and remain open to the possibility of a strict literal view being important as well.
Here's an example of a well known passage that is usually taken metaphorically, but also has a valid literal interpretation.
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. Romans 12:1
Here the literal understanding implies that there may or will be a time where God want's you to literally offer yourself up, as Paul did; dying a martyr's death.
