August 9: Righteousness

When a man sinned against another man, there was always the hope of God’s forgiveness. But there was no such hope if a man sinned against the Lord God. That is what happened to the sons of the High Priest Eli.

1 Samuel 2:22-25

Now Eli was very old; and he heard everything his sons did to all Israel, and how they lay with the women who assembled at the door of the tabernacle of meeting.  So he said to them, “Why do you do such things? For I hear of your evil dealings from all the people. No, my sons! For it is not a good report that I hear. You make the Lord’s people transgress. If one man sins against another, God will judge him. But if a man sins against the Lord, who will intercede for him?” Nevertheless they did not heed the voice of their father, because the Lord desired to kill them.

PRAY FOR ISRAEL TO BE RIGHTEOUS BEFORE THE LORD GOD OF ISRAEL.
