Daily Devotional

27 May

14 Soldiers also asked him, “And we, what shall we do?” And he said to them, “Do not extort money from anyone by threats or by false accusation, and be content with your wages.” (Luke 3:14, ESV)

As you notice, John the Baptist does not say anything bad about the Soldier’s profession. In fact, being content with wages assumes they will continue in their service. The only thing the Prophet asks them was quite simply to treat people fairly.

Prayer: Lord, may my interactions be fair, just, gracious and honorable to your name and for other’s dignity.
