Discrimination

March 15, 2020

Word of the day: 15 For the assembly, there shall be one statute for you and for the stranger who sojourns with you, a statute forever throughout your generations. You and the sojourner shall be alike before the Lord. Numbers 15:15 ESV

Let’s talk about discrimination for a second. The definition is the unjust or prejudicial treatment of different categories of people or things, especially on the grounds of race, age, or sex. God blessed the Israelites with a land of their own. When God blesses you with something, we can’t discriminate against it for any reason. We should not let boundaries get in the way of what God blessed you. Open yourself up and don’t allow your idols to decide they want barriers that will enable you to have limitations. I see it so much it is unbearable to see. In this verse, the Israelites cannot discriminate against anyone that came to the land. Good leaders do not distinguish for any reason. If you worship someone that allows discrimination or boundaries in a hateful way, it is time for cleansing, wisdom, and inviting the holy spirit to be in your life more often.
Father, thank you for our fellowship. I pray for boundaries in our lives. I admit I have some limitations in my life for not communicating with others. I am a private person, but I have boundaries issues. I am not letting people into my home. I need to examine this and is willing to allow the holy spirit to work on me. Thank you for your love. In Jesus’ name. Amen!

My name is Darren. I started sharing devotions in June 2019. As one of the ministry leaders at my church. One reason why I started devotions is because of the lack of inspiration and motivation in our lives. It is hard to be encouraged with a lot of negativity going around. I invite you to be encouraged by the word of God. Our struggles can be personal, at the workplace, and the lack of community in our lives. When we go through hard times, we need the word of God. Please read them and be encouraged. I also started a podcast talking about racism and discrimination. Please take a moment to check that out as well. Afternoon Coffee Break with Darren Watts.
