Don't Be Sodom
Are you REALLY “not that!”? Don’t be, but make sure your definition is correct.
“Behold, this was the guilt of your sister Sodom: she and her daughters had pride, excess of food, and prosperous ease, but did not aid the poor and needy.” -Ezekiel 16:49
Every time I’m blind to the plight of others, I am Sodom.
Every time I expect someone to “do it on his or her own,” I am Sodom.
Every time I choose selfishly to enjoy luxury, when there is a need I can meet, I am Sodom.
Every time I justify my position in life and am deaf to the needs of those around me, I am Sodom.
Jesus made clear the selfless manner in which we are to live. He gave the ministry of reconciliation such weight that in Matthew 25 he described eternal judgment as resting on it.
