THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS


DAILY DEVOTIONS

HI!

Teacher: Millie give us a sentence with the word “I” in it.
Millie: “I is....”
Teacher (interrupting): NO, Millie. ALWAYS use “I AM.”
Millie: Ok. I am the ninth letter of the alphabet.

HMMM!

The Hebrew word for “abomination” above is: tow`ebah (to-ay-baw').
It means abhorrent, or repugnant, or disgusting.

It’s really hard to understand why our court system will even hear a case where religious liberty is sacrificed in favor of that which is abhorrent to God!
It should be “kicked out” before ever entering the court!

When a photographer refuses to take photographs of a lesbian/homosexual wedding that’s religious liberty.
When a florist refuses to provide flowers for a lesbian/homosexual wedding that’s religious liberty.
And, it is supposed to be protected under the first amendment to our Constitution.

In a recent report, one of the nation’s leading pollsters posted the question:
"If a Christian wedding photographer who has deeply held religious beliefs opposing same-sex marriage is asked to work a same-sex wedding ceremony, does he/she have the right to say ‘no’?” (Rasmussen Reports)
An overwhelming 85% of Americans said “YES!”
Only 8% disagreed!

I agree that everyone has the “right” to be wrong.
But a person’s right to be wrong should not cause harm to another person’s “right” to be RIGHT!

We, as Christians, must realize that God loves people even when they are wrong.
Rom 5:8
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

I’m so thankful that Jesus loved me (even in my sinfulness) enough to die for me!!

Because of this, God has commanded that Christians love ALL mankind, and try to reach them for Christ.
((Matt. 22:39, Matt. 28:18-20))

God help me be patient and kind to those who are morally wrong.
But, never let me compromise His right for their wrong!

Love ya!
