““You shall be holy, for I the Lord your God am holy.” (Leviticus 19:2b ESV)
Can’t get clearer or more straightforward than this. An important truth.
“Do no turn to idols..”
Not only referring to physical representations. Who do I turn to in joy or in suffering? Do I turn to God?
Hard work brings good results, this is true. But God can turn this around, as he has done many times, to make us realize that He is Lord and that results is a blessing from God. We can plant the seed, water and care for the plant, but it is God who makes it grow. Therefore, be generous with your blessings. Does it even count as generosity, if it does not belong to you in the first place? Be a channel of God’s blessing. That’s an awesome feeling.
Wow, I’m not even halfway! To be continued.
