DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
Inner Purity Rather Than Outward Show
There are customs that are dearly helpful in each Christian denomination, which in themselves do not promote holiness. Those in one denomination often judge people in other denomination standing on the standard of their own customs. Division in the body of Christ tend to occur along the lines of these customs. The customs prove to be of minor importance in our relationship with God. It is common to see a Christian holding religiously to the denomination’s customs while still gossiping, backbiting, cheating customers, lying or defrauding. The qualities which are important to God are holiness, humility and being just in our dealing with other people. Some of the things we tend to major in, are minors where holiness is concerned. We should stop majoring in minor issues.
Point of Emphasis: Do not judge another Christian on minor issues that do not promote holiness.
Prayer Point: Give me the grace to focus more on those matters that are of importance to You, God.
