Weekly Devotion Zechariah 7:5-6
Posted On July 6, 2018
“Speak unto all the people of the land, and to the priests, saying, When ye fasted and mourned in the fifth and seventh month, even those seventy years, did ye at all fast unto me, even to me? And when ye did eat, and when ye did drink, did not ye eat for yourselves, and drink for yourselves?”
The people fasted often as an outward sign of devotion to the Lord, but in their hearts they weren’t doing it for the Lord – but for themselves. They didn’t even eat and drink as unto the Lord. They ate and drank for themselves as well.
Lord, You search the hearts of men, and You know my heart. Help me to have the right heart and attitude when I do things for You. Help me to serve for Your sake and not my own. Help me to live my life for You and not me. Help me to honor You in all that I do. I love You, Lord.
