In a world of diminishing absolutes, making a clear distinction between right and wrong isn’t what it use to be. Shades of grey have entered the equation, leaving the truth uncertain. To erase this confusion, one must shine the light of the Bible on this matter to distinguish the moral from immoral.
History reveals this struggle is nothing new as periods in time are filled with examples of people who blended in like chameleons, hiding their faith from society. This pattern led Moses to challenge Israel to make a clear distinction between holiness and common citizens in Leviticus 10:10-11. This lesson from the past should challenge us to examine our own lives to ascertain where do you stand?
When you’re feeling good about yourself, pride will lead you to hold a higher view than your actions actually display. On the other hand, when your day of humility comes, you might feel like the apostle Paul in 1 Timothy 1:15. Despite the good and bad that you do, Jesus still wants believers to shine their light, Matthew 5:13. Like the childhood song proclaims, don’t hide your light anymore, make a clear distinction today by imitating God, Ephesians 5:1-4.
