MONDAY, MAY 6
Scripture: Exodus 32:25-28
When Moses got down from the mountain, he found the people had not only built an idol, but they were dramatically descending into sexual sin. He asked for volunteers that day and all the Levites came forward. Because they were willing to execute God’s justice, even in their own families and tribes, that day they were given the priesthood. That is a picture that tells us something about what it costs to be a priest of the Lord. You cannot be a priest of the Lord and refuse to execute His justice. We have to hold even our own family to a certain standard of righteousness or we end up praying judicial prayers even on them.
