“You are not to pity him. Rather, you must put an end to the shedding of innocent blood in Israel. Then things will go well with you.”
Deuteronomy 19:13 CJB
We can read verses like this and think that the LORD is being harsh or mean, but He really wants us to take sin seriously! As believers, we allow way to much compromise into our lives and I believe the LORD wants us to put and end to it!
“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who change darkness into light and light into darkness, who change bitter into sweet and sweet into bitter!”
Isaiah 5:20 CJB
The words of Isaiah are almost three thousand years old and the still ring true today. Society is really backwards, just like Isaiah says: good is evil and evil is good! With this said, we really should take a deep look inside ourselves!
“Examine me, Adonai, test me, search my mind and heart.”
Today, let’s really have a heart check and remove the things that harm us! Have a blessed day looking to the LORD!
