Dec. 27

Hello and thanks for joining in on to today’s daily devotion. Today is Sunday Dec. 27th. The 1st
day of the Hebraic week.

Our verse today is Psalms 101:3

3 I will set before my eyes no vile thing. The deeds of faithless men I hate; they will not cling to me.

Wow. What a verse. Before we go any farther, let’s remember that this was written by David. The one noted as a man after God’s own heart.

“I will set before my eyes no vile thing.” The Hebrew word for “vile” here has several definitions and can also be interpreted as wicked, worthless, or even good for nothing. The bottom line is that David, the man after God’s heart, did not want to set anything before him that was displeasing to YHWH.

So the question is, do we set anything before us that is displeasing to the Father? Think about it for a minute? Examine what you may watch on TV or in the movies. Is there anything in these that you put before you that is displeasing to YHWH? Is there anything in them that glorifies the very things that YHWH forbids? Would that not be equal to setting something that is vile before us?

This can be a difficult topic for many but we have to be honest with ourselves. Trust me when I say that I know it’s not always easy. But does that really matter? If YHWH will forbid something in the scriptures, what makes us believe it will be OK to watch it in the form of entertainment?

It was just recently that my family and I began re-examining different things in our life and we did a major clean out. One that we all agreed on. Have you ever done that before? Take the scriptures in one hand and put your entertainment in the other. Start examining things to the scriptures. Remember, it’s the scriptures that we will be judged by.

The rest of our verse says “The deeds of faithless men I hate; they will not cling to me.”

As I said, this can be a difficult topic for many. When most hear this verse and subject brought up, they are quick to defend their actions through various rational. All the while not realizing that the deeds of Faithless men could be clinging to them.

So, where do you stand on the subject?

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until tomorrow, shalom!
