Day Seventeen

No Song of Songs 3:16
Isaiah 3:16 (ESV)
The Lord said: Because the daughters of Zion are haughty and walk with outstretched necks, glancing wantonly with their eyes, mincing along as they go, tinkling with their feet, …
 
This prophecy is against the people of God who flaunt their wealth while ignoring the poor. The daughters act as if they are better than everyone else, striking poses to make themselves look seductive and flirting with those around them. Imagine if they could have taken selfies or had Snapchat!
 
Their focus is on themselves and not on their neighbor. The followers of Christ should constantly think of John 3:16 where we see Christ’s sacrifice is for all believers. Salvation is not based on income, looks or position, but solely on faith. As Christians, we are Christ followers, and should treat all people the same. For everyone, believers and non-believers, have been created with the image of God within them.
 
Questions:
Why do you think it is easy for us to focus on ourselves and forget about others?
 
How can we help “our daughters” not repeat the behavior and attitudes of these daughters of Zion?
 
Activity:
Prayerfully seek avenues to assist the poor in Omaha and then follow through on those opportunities.
