Bible Reading for JAN05: Genesis 13-15

In today’s reading we see that Abraham did leave
Egypt and God forgave him and restored him to
fellowship. But God could not overrule the sad
consequences of the trip to Egypt. There was a loss of
time and testimony. Sarah’s maid, Hagar, came from
Egypt, and brought untold trouble to the family. Lot had
developed a taste for Egypt. Though Abraham took Lot out
of Egypt, he could not take Egypt out of Lot! How tragic
when a mature believer leads a younger Christian astray!

Are you a mature believer who is guilty of
leading others astray? Many Christians are careless in
their daily living. There is an old saying that our
actions speak louder than our words. Be assured that the
world is always watching the Christian! God forbid that
we should ever be guilty of bringing reproach upon our
Lord and Saviour. As Christians, we should carefully
guard our testimony. We are God’s children, the Holy
Spirit lives within us, and our every action should be
controlled by Him. Let’s not be guilty of leading others
astray by our careless living.
