DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
Don’t Learn The Way Of The World
God, through Prophet Jeremiah, was giving advice to the children of Israel that when they get to the Promised Land, they would see so many side attractions, foreign cultures, lifestyles, strange religions, etc, but they must not learn the way of the Gentiles. Why? This is because worldly customs and fashions are futile and godless (v. 3). They cannot add any value to one’s life but rather deplete one’s life, make one an enemy of God and eventually send the person to hell. Know that all that are in the world – the lust of flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life – are not of the Father. Therefore, don’t copy worldly systems, don’t learn them, be godly and live life that is pleasing to God.
Point of Emphasis: Do not conform to the system of this world.
Prayer Point: Lord, help me to love God and His ways more than anything else.
