Judge not…


It is easy to judge the Israelites for their idol worship and their poor decisions, but we often act the same way. God brought the Israelites out of slavery and bondage, yet they complained because they did not get the food they wanted. Has there been a time when you complained because you did not get what you wanted? Before you think you would not act like the Israelites, consider what you worship. We should have no other gods in our life. It does not have to be a god-like monument – anything that takes our attention from our Savior can be an idol! Job, affections, time, effort…

And we pray;

Dear God, forgive me for the times I have failed to see all the ways You have rescued me. Forgive my grumbling when things did not go my way. When I begin to have a negative attitude, may I be reminded of the Israelites and their journey out of Egypt. Allow me to learn from their story. When I exalt anyone or anything above You, make it known to me so that I may repent and turn away from this idol worship. Thank You for Your mercy and Your grace. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
