There are more laws than just The Ten Commandments listed in the Bible, some of the ones featured in Leviticus 19 (NIV) are the least known or discussed; in my opinion. And it’s not that we are ignorant of these laws, it’s just we know so much more than what’s true. So, here are a few, Just So You Know!
Stand up in the presence of the aged, show respect for the elderly and revere your God.
Just so you know: “The young man pities his elders, fearing the day he, too, will join their ranks. The elderly man pities the younger generation, well-knowing the trials, and tribulations that lie ahead of them.” Linda I Fisher
Do not turn to mediums or seek spirits, for you will be defiled by them.
These types of teachings come from a brand of religion called new ageist, and it has nothing to do with Christianity.
Just so you know: When men tell you to consult mediums and spiritualist, who whisper and mutter, should not a people inquire of their God? Why consult the dead on behalf of the living? Isaiah 8:19 NIV)
Do not curse the deaf or put a stumbling block in front of the blind.
Just so you know: When you react to someone in a negative way because they are different, you miss out on their abilities, beauty, and uniqueness.
Do not show partiality to the poor or favoritism to the great.
Just so you know: As Christians, we are supposed to be imitators of Christ. And if you really keep the law you will “Love your neighbor” as yourself. James 2:8
Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves.
Just so you know: The life of the dead should only be placed in the memory of the living; there he can live on as a great man. And tattoos are like burns; they can never be removed.
FYI: A young woman showed me a tattoo of a rosebud on her left breast. As an elderly woman, I told her if she reaches my age, that rosebud will have turned into a long stem rose; if you get my drift. 🙂
Thank you, Lord, for the wisdom you have afforded us, and it is in Jesus name that we pray. Amen
