Scripture: They did not destroy the peoples as the Lord had commanded them, but they mingled with the nations and adopted their customs. They worshiped their idols, which became a snare to them. Psalm 106:34-36 NIV
Observation: The Psalmist advises that Israel’s downfall was their failure to separate themselves from the nations around them.
Application: We should learn from Israel. Their failure should be our success. We must not conform to the influences of society. We should strive to set a Christian example that will transform it.
Prayer: Father, help me to be strong in the face of difficulty. Help my life be an example to others of the love of Jesus and his transforming power. I ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen
