Friday, July 6th: Micah 1-3; Titus 3 ~ Emma
Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is Micah 1-3; Titus 3
Tomorrow's Bible In a Year Passage: Micah 4-7; Philemon 1
“Do not get involved in foolish discussions about spiritual pedigrees or in quarrels and fights about obedience to Jewish laws. These things are useless and a waste of time.” - Titus 3:9
Many things are “black and white” in the bible, but there are also a lot of “grey areas.” These are the kinds of things that aren’t worth arguing with other believers about.
Things like: “should we be tithing more than 10%?” “Should we let kids play sports on Sundays?” “Is dancing an “okay” form of worship?”
These arguments are not essential to our salvation and have been debated over for a long time, and as long as we’re waiting for Jesus’ return, people will keep debating them.
Instead of arguing over these “grey areas”, we should encourage each other in the faith, and pray for each other. Because we definitely don’t want to become like the Pharisees who thought religion and rules were more important than a faith and relationship with God.
Let’s focus on lifting each other up today.
