wrong thing even when done for a good motive does not become right.
We humans are good at justifying ourselves to ourselves. If only we
could step outside ourselves and hear the unconscious dialog that goes on in our minds... a dialog which God does hear.
He is neither moved or amused. He sees us just as we are--which
should be a goal of how we see ourselves. Today, pick out just one
or two things and think about why you are doing what you do.
Aaron's sons Nadab and Abihu took their censers, put fire in them
and added incense; and they offered unauthorized fire before the
LORD, contrary to his command. So fire came out from the presence of
the LORD and consumed them, and they died before the LORD.
(Lev 10:1-2 NIV)
