Mind the Do Nots
Read Leviticus 16:1 through 18:30
Increasingly, the world pushes against the Church in an attempt to silence the Christian voice. Accusations of intolerance and irrelevance abound, but a life lived well before God is hard to refute. Love in action speaks louder than words. The Church must resist the corrupting influences of the world and work to strengthen the weak hearts of the would-be faithful.
“Keep my requirements and do not follow any of the detestable customs that were practiced before you came and do not defile yourselves with them. I am the Lord your God” (Leviticus 18:30).
In the midst of world turmoil, it is important to stay true to God and His Word. The display of true Christian love and biblical values is a stark contrast to the customs and beliefs that oppose God. He expects His children to act in a manner that honors His character. When we honor Him, we are a light to a lost world.
Thought for Today: Resistance overcomes weakness, while compromise corrupts strength.
Quicklook: Leviticus 18:24–30
