It can be hard to break from traditions, especially those involving family gatherings where there’s laughter & love. It can be difficult being viewed as an outcast for not conforming to society’s norms. It may be painful, even physically draining, because the flesh always wants what it wants. But, I can assure you, the pain of remorse for disobeying the Most High, is a heartbreak you do not want. Acts 5:29 says, we ought to obey God rather than men. So, why do we keep the traditions of man instead?
Scripture says, “This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.” Matt 15:8-9
Christ says: If ye love me keep my commandments. – John 14:15
May the truth set you free!
