This week’s readings are based on the “Provide Reality” sermon from the RelationSHIFT series. This season, we want to focus on getting the proper perspective about God and others in order to improve our relationships. Slow down, read the text, and then let it read you.
"If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at your door; it desires to have you, but you must rule over it."
Genesis 4:7 (NIV)
God is good, and His desire is for us not to sin. In the story of Cain and Abel found in Genesis 4, God gave Cain this warning before he killed his brother Abel. He was giving Cain a prompting and instruction on how to handle his anger before he acted upon it. Today, God’s warnings often come to us as promptings from the Holy Spirit. Today, and during this season, listen to the promptings of God, that still small voice speaking to you. God will not lead you astray.
