Someone once shared with me that while visiting the French Riviera she hit the beach and noticed most of the ladies were topless. So she decided well, “When in Rome” or France in this case ‘C’est la vie’ (that’s life) and it was off with her own bathing suit top. So a follower of Christ ends up on an exciting vacation adventure and something she’d never consider doing on the Jersey Shore she’s suddenly up for when in another land. Chalk it up to a submission to cultural customs. Then there’s Leviticus 18. We can bury our heads in the sand, or in the chapter. Choose the chapter. it’s good stuff.
Lord, whether at home or far away, help us to remain the same as we would if You were right there with us, because You are.
Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: ‘I am the LORD your God. According to the doings of the land of Egypt, where you dwelt, you shall not do; and according to the doings of the land of Canaan, where I am bringing you, you shall not do; nor shall you walk in their ordinances. You shall observe My judgments and keep My ordinances, to walk in them: I am the LORD your God. You shall therefore keep My statutes and My judgments, which if a man does, he shall live by them: I am the LORD. (Lev. 18:1-5, NKJV)
