TEXT: ACTS 4:18 -20
18 And they called them, and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus.
19 But Peter and John answered and said unto them, Whether it be right in the sight of God to hearken unto you more than unto God, judge ye.
20 For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard.
Key verse: Deuteronomy 22: 5 “The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.”
Every gender has dress fitting for it and the Lord demands that we should be properly covered so that we don’t affect the righteousness of our neighbor. Thou shall love your neighbor as yourself and the bible says let every man see that he does not lay a stumbling block in the way of His neighbor. Don’t lay a stumbling block by which your brother will stumble. Don’t do that. This dress that you wear when a woman puts on that which belongs to a man, she will lack the proper covering required for her body building. Some parts of her will sensitively appear and that will affect her fellow person in his morality in his thoughts, that will become a sin unto her.
The bible says, whoever looks at a woman to lust after her has committed adultery already in his heart and wearing trousers by a woman exposes her privacy. In fact, a woman in trousers that is passing a man is as one passing a house with an open door. Your eyes must be attracted to those things, to see what is inside this room. Yes, you are passing by a house, a good house but the door of the house is open. You are automatically attracted to look into the door because there is a desire to see that which is in secret in man, so you are looking in to see what is there.
A woman that appears in trousers attracts every man because she is not properly covered. Something has been left exposed, that attracts passersby. Unfortunately, that which is left exposed is that which tells a lot on morality and the righteousness of the society. She causes many people to commit adultery in their hearts because of her trousers. When she sits on a motorcycle, the trousers pull down to expose her buttocks which were not meant for trousers. This promotes immorality. Based on this, this law remains effective because all about the law of God is righteousness.
Thought for the day: Deuteronomy 22:5 is a moral law required for righteousness.
Song for the day: Make me holy (3x) O Lord
Bible reading for the day: Israel 24-26; Ephesians 4
