Day 155/260: Read 1 Peter 2
“Honor all people. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the king.” As you scroll through social media, do these attitudes prevail?
We must not lift one category of people up above another, whether that be based on race, economic status, or fame, above others. God is concerned with character, not classification (Acts 10:34-35).
We must not tear down our brothers and sisters in Christ, ever, but especially in a public forum! If there is someone doing wrong or teaching wrong, approach them with meekness, and try to help them discover the truth (Galatians 6:1). Even if they do not accept the truth, do not insult them personally. Teach the truth and expose false doctrine, being careful that you do not attack or insult on a personal level the one behind the false doctrine.
We must not speak flippantly about spiritual things. Do not take the name of the Lord in vain. This includes the acronym, “OMG.” His hallowed name must not be treated callously or carelessly (Ephesians 4:29).
We must not defy the government when the government is not hindering us from our Christian duty. Our citizenship is first in heaven. We must obey God above all others. Obedience to God includes subjection to the powers that be (Romans 13:1-7).
Memory (Recite to a friend without looking)
Matthew 26:28. “For this is the blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.”
Pray for wisdom in applying these godly principles.
