Week of January 21 - Day 1

Scripture to Memorize: Leviticus 19:2

Day 1  Read: Leviticus 19:2

“Speak to all the congregation of the people of Israel and say to them, You shall be holy, for I the Lord your God am holy. 

Reflect: What command was Moses to give the people?

Consider: Yahweh--Or The Lord; it is the personal name of God in Hebrew; “Yah” is the shortened form. Yahweh is used in places where the personal name of God is discussed (Ps 68:4) or in places of His self-identification (Is 42:8).[1]

Respond: Why is the command to be holy such a daunting one? What are the biggest obstacles for you personally? How are you, an imperfect and fallible human, supposed to achieve the holiness God demands?
