ARE YOU STRAYING TO YOUR OWN PATH?

We find in Malachi 1:1 thru 2:9 the Lord calling the priests to task for falling away from the simple worship of the Lord to making a show while actually ignoring His stated requirements. How easy it is for us to pretend, to make a show of our professed love of the Lord while actually considering our own wants first!

I find myself at times making excuses in an effort to avoid reading my Bible on a daily basis. And the result is offering a lame, crippled version of all that I could and should be to God.  Too many churches these days have strayed from Biblical worship and teaching, to engage in pageantry and showmanship, pretending to serve the Lord while offering often less than their best.

As in Malachi 2:9, we must ask ourselves "Are we keeping the Lord's ways, or do we stray to our own path?
