“For ‘the name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles because of you ,’ just as it is written.”
Paul was talking about the Jews that were proud of having the law of God but they were a disgrace to God because they did not do what they teach. Their actions were opposite to their beliefs causing non-Jews to blaspheme God’s name.
Is my actions causing people around me to praise God or to blaspheme His name? When people listen to what I say and look to what I do, they need to find consistency. They need to see that I am a man of my word, and that I live my beliefs, and my values are nonnegotiable.
Father, thank you for this Saturday. I pray for your protection upon my family. Winter is here and Yui still recovering from her cold. Help her to heal completely. In Jesus name I pray.
