March 31– Judges 17:1-6

March 31– Judges 17:1-6

17 There was a man of the hill country of Ephraim, whose name was Micah. And he said to his mother, “The 1,100 pieces of silver that were taken from you, about which you uttered a curse, and also spoke it in my ears, behold, the silver is with me; I took it.” And his mother said, “Blessed be my son by the Lord.” And he restored the 1,100 pieces of silver to his mother. And his mother said, “I dedicate the silver to the Lord from my hand for my son, to make a carved image and a metal image. Now therefore I will restore it to you.” So when he restored the money to his mother, his mother took 200 pieces of silver and gave it to the silversmith, who made it into a carved image and a metal image. And it was in the house of Micah. And the man Micah had a shrine, and he made an ephod and household gods, and ordained one of his sons, who became his priest. In those days there was no king in Israel. Everyone did what was right in his own eyes.

How often have we heard those last few words in verse 6?  “everyone did what was right in his own eyes.”?  It so reminds me of the times we are living in!  Even our government pushes us to live in such a way we are doing what is best for us. 

What things are you doing today that the world says are okay, but you know God doesn’t approve?  What are you going to do to change your attitude and begin living in a way that pleases your Creator?  God will give you the strength to overcome temptations and change the desires of your heart to line up with the desire’s of God’s heart.

Heavenly Father, guide not only my actions, but guide the desires of my heart to line up with the desires of Your heart.

In Jesus’ name.
