Re:Verse reading–Judges 17:1-6; 18:1; 19:1; 20:1-7; 21:25 (day four)
Micah’s mother meant well. She was pleased to find what happened to her silver and she dedicated it to the Lord. Where she failed though was in her application. Instead of worshipping the Lord in the way He had prescribed, she did it in her own way. She disobeyed God’s direct command to make no graven images. She sought to worship God according to her own sinful heart.
Are we guilty of ignoring God’s commands and doing things our own way? Have we placed idols before God? Maybe we had good intentions, but we failed to base our actions in Scripture. Have we lost sight of the Truth in Scripture…saying that it was good for the ancients, but it is no longer valid for today? Ask the Lord to search your heart and to cleanse you from all unrighteousness. God’s Truth never changes…it applies today just as it did thousands of years ago.
