Daily D – Leviticus 19:2
Leviticus 19:2 “Speak to the entire Israelite community and tell them: Be holy because I, the Lord your God, am holy.“ (CSB)
There’s more to this verse than we can mine in these moments. What bare truths can we take with us into this day?
God wants our character to be shaped by his character.
God wants his values to be our values.
God wants us to do what he would do if he were us.
These are ongoing, evergreen issues. Each of us has room to grow in each of these areas.
Invite God to shape your character. He will ennoble you.
Invite God to implant his values in you. He will direct your decisions.
Invite God to express himself through you. He will direct your hands, heart, and head.
Leaning into God’s holiness refines us into the persons he always intended us to be. Holiness is the true path for the truly good life.
I will invite God to make me holier day by day.
Our Father, shape my character. Reshape my values. Demonstrate your goodness to those I encounter where I live, work, and play. Amen.

Deuteronomy 8:12-18 When you eat and are full, and build beautiful houses to live in, and your herds and flocks grow large, and your silver and gold multiply, and everything else you have increases, be careful that your heart doesn’t become proud and you forget the Lord your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the place of slavery. He led you through the great and terrible wilderness with its poisonous snakes and scorpions, a thirsty land where there was no water. He brought water out of the flint rock for you. He fed you in the wilderness with manna, which your ancestors had not known, in order to humble and test you, so that in the end he might cause you to prosper. You may say to yourself, ‘My power and my own ability have gained this wealth for me,’ but remember that the Lord your God gives you the power to gain wealth, in order to confirm his covenant he swore to your ancestors, as it is today.
Deuteronomy 6:4-9 “Listen, Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. These words that I am giving you today are to be in your heart. Repeat them to your children. Talk about them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Bind them as a sign on your hand and let them be a symbol on your forehead. Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your city gates.“
Deuteronomy 1:2, 3 It is an eleven-day journey from Horeb to Kadesh-barnea by way of Mount Seir. In the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the first of the month, Moses told the Israelites everything the Lord had commanded him to say to them.
