DAILY READINGS: Exodus 8:1-32; Psalms 38:1-39:13; Acts 3:1-26

But He answered and said…Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition…in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. Matt. 15:3, 9

As Martin Luther meditated on God’s Word he realized that a lot of what he had been teaching were the traditions of men and not what the Bible said. When at the Diet of Worms he was called upon to recant, he said, “I cannot and will not recant anything, for to go against conscience is neither right nor safe. Here I stand, I can do no other, so help me God.” May God deliver us from misleading His people with our traditions instead of feeding them the true and accurate written Word of God. —David Croudace

O teach me, Lord, that I may teach, the precious things Thou dost impart,
And wing my words, that they may reach the hidden depths of many a heart. —Frances Ridley Havergal
