I would like to ask everyone to please read and reflect on this comandment from start to finish it may just cause some of you to rethink certain things.
Thou shall not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above,or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; and showing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and kep my commandments.
So the Lord promises hismercy to those who love him and keep his commandments. What greter gift could any man desire? But he wants us to trust in him, He doesnt want us bending our knee and bowing down to any other images. He does not want us praying to anyone other than himself. He is pretty clear that doing any of these things will bring punishment.
I know this is a tough battle sometimes, I currently have a client who's house is under contract, who is convinced that it is because of the Saint Joseph buried in the front yard. I tried to talk her out of it she is a friend and as much as i wanted to sell her home I am more concerned about her salvation. I witness to her regularly but so far to no avail.
I ask all of you as Christian Realtors to please discourage this practice of idolatry. We have but one God deserving of our worship and prayers. In God's own words he will hold responsible your children to the third and fourth generations. Is that the legacy we hope to leave to our children?
GOD BLESS YOU
