Exodus 34:12 Take heed to thyself, lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land whither thou goest, lest it be for a snare in the midst of thee:
God warned His people to be careful not to make a covenant with the people of the land. They worshipped other gods. They would become a stumbling stone for them. They would learn the ways of the godless people and begin to accept them and to even incorporate them into their lives.
When we begin associating with people of wrong belief systems we open ourselves up to love them. This is where the whole idea of political correctness comes from. We do not want to offend our friends. Maybe we do not agree with them but we must be nice about it. There are no longer enemies of God. There are no longer those that are wrong and those that are right. Everyone is at least a little right.
We get to the point of believing there is a little good in everyone and a little bad too. That gets us one step closer to accepting things that we shouldn’t.
So the lesson for today is, learn what is truth. Be careful to stay away from lining up with those that are against God and His truth!
