Observations: Joshua 20 was the allotment of property for Levi. Joshua 21 is the story of the Eastern Tribe’s heading back home. They built an altar at the Jordan as a testimony to their love for God. Psalm 47 is a hymn of praise to the Lord! In 1 Corinthians 10, there is a warning against idolatry. Paul tells us that no temptation can overtake us that God will not give us a way out.
Scripture: “All things are lawful, but not all things are helpful. All things are lawful, but not all things build up. Let no one seek his own good, but the good of his neighbor.” (1 Corinthians 10:23-24)
Application: I often hear it said that just because you can do something, doesn’t mean it is the right thing to do (like eating a hot fudge sundae when you are on a diet). You look at what is allowed on television these days, but that doesn’t mean we should watch it. You look at what is allowed on the internet these days, but that doesn’t mean you should go to those sights. You look at how you spend your time, and have to question whether it is the best use of your time. You look at how you use your resources, and wonder if you should have used it to help another? In these times of Stay at Home, pay attention to how you are using your time and your resources. Are you being pleasing to God?
Prayer: Dear Father, guide my steps Lord. Show me your ways. Lead me in how I use your resources to your glory! Amen
