In those days there was no king in Israel; all the people did what was right in their own eyes. Judges 21: 25 NRSV
If we can learn nothing else from the Book of Judges, it is to take a hard examination of our own lives and ask if we are doing what is right in our own eyes rather than in God's eyes.
I am asking today if you will spend at least five minutes asking God to reveal to you what you are doing that seems right to you but God disagrees.
God, thank you for revealing how blind we really are. So often we see that we are doing the right thing but we see with our eyes, not yours. Help us to truly see, Lord. Thank you for this book of the Bible that can act as a mirror for us in our daily walk with you. In Jesus' holy name we pray. Amen.
Question for the day: Did you really take five minutes or did you just skip over that in order to read the prayer and this question?
