Today's Devotion: October 30
 

Negating the Word of God
 

Therefore, brethren, stand fast and hold the traditions which you were taught, whether by word or our epistle.

2 Thessalonians 2:15

Mark 7:1-13

 

 

Many adults today are assuming a greater share of responsibility for their aging parents. In Jesus’ day, He criticized some who sidestepped that responsibility based on a Jewish tradition that had evolved. They made “the word of God of no effect through [their] tradition” (Mark 7:13). This tradition said money could be dedicated to God and thus not be used to help one’s parents. That is an example of keeping the letter but violating the spirit of the law. It was a tradition that essentially negated God’s Word. Traditions are not wrong in and of themselves—they are simply practices or teachings passed from one generation to another. If the practices or teachings conform to God’s Word, they are good and should be preserved—like the traditions Paul exhorted the Corinthians and Thessalonians to keep (1 Corinthians 11:2; 2 Thessalonians 2:15). The challenge is discerning which traditions are pleasing to God and which are not.


Think about the religious traditions in your own life today. How many are conscious choices, consistent with Scripture, and how many are not?



Corrupt practices are the genuine fruit and product of corrupt principles.

In their attempt to set up a caliphate state, the radical Islamist group ISIS leaves a devastating trail of chaos and pain as they move across Iraq and surrounding nations -- destroying towns and families -- and killing those who reject conversion to their form of Islam. Tensions continue to rise between Russia and the Ukraine as the battle for Ukrainian sovereignty rages on.
