There are some that say God does not care about man or how we live. He has no interest. But I beg to differ, especially when considering the Sundry Laws in Leviticus chapter 19.
I have never taken the time to count how many different miscellaneous laws are mentioned there. But they cover almost every aspect of our lives. God established laws - a way of living that all men, women, and children should follow. Take for instance, in verse 11, it states clearly that we SHOULD NOT steal, deal falsely, or lie to one another. Verse 16 says we should not SLANDER another person. Verse 26 states that we the people should not practice or take part in soothsaying or divination such as horoscopes. There are just so many laws listed there for a generation of God's people to follow.
When you read about such laws and other provisions God has put in place for mankind to follow, the problem has never been with His laws or mandates. The problem has always been with man, that is individuals. Their inability or refusal to be obedient or rebellious spirit. Man, each one of us sees ourselves as "good", when we have time and time again violated the standards of God. Standards He has established for us to follow. Right there in that same chapter, we are instructed - "EVERYONE OF YOU SHALL reverence his mother and father...." (Leviticus 19:3) How many of us actually do this by word, action, or deed? Do we bring our parents honor or shame? This same chapter forbidden us from honoring other things in our lives more than God. (See verses 2 through 4 of Leviticus chapter 19). And yet, many of us place entertainment, our friends, the preferences of spouses, our children, our jobs, our pastor, our church, social agendas - you see where I'm going with this. We put these things above God.
God has standards. But man has over and over again - from one generation to the next, choose to ignore, no, abandon these standards. We, speaking to my generation, are instructed to teach our children about God and His ways when we sit in our houses, when we walk about, when we lie down, and when we rise up (Deuteronomy 6:6-7). Okay, so how many of us are really doing that? We have abandoned God and His ways. He certainly cares about every aspect of our lives. But we the people have rejected Him.
This blog is really not about me, but more about my Father and our relationship. How we interact with one another and my response to His prompting. To be honest, at the moment, I do not know what to expect from this blog. I have no idea how personal I will get, what exactly I will share, and how often I will do it. But one thing is for certain. I will share what God places on my heart to share.
