Even though I gave them all my laws they act as if those laws don’t apply to them.
Do you find it easy to listen to a sermon? Do you sometimes think of people that you know who should be listening? Have you ever read the Bible and thought of someone who should do what the passage teaches?
The Israelites did this constantly, applying God's laws to others but not to themselves. This is just another way to set aside God's Word and avoid applying it to their lives.
As you think of others who need to apply what you may hear in a sermon, or in your daily reading of God's Word, you might check to see if the same application could apply to you. Keep this in mind that often our own faults are the very ones we see in others. Israel was so busy sinning and pointing out others sin that they failed to stop and see their own sin.
Today pray and ask God to help you as you listen to a sermon, that you would examine your own life. And as you read and study His Word. Before you question someone about their sin, make sure that you don't have the same sin in your life. Use good discernment when sharing your faith with others.
