One important skill you must learn if you will make it in the purpose and plan of God for your life is learning to differentiate. Everywhere you go and whatever you do, you must differentiate between people, places, things and events. Your ability to differentiate well in life will earn you a lot of favour before God and man.
Looking at the Bible passage today, God said that as a matter of priority, the priests of the nation of Israel must teach the children of Israel the difference. You can see therefore that differentiation is something that God does not joke with. It is a divine demand upon God’s people. When you generalize, you make common what God has called holy and call holy what God has called common. A Christian that generalizes will cross many lines with God and will ultimately get into trouble with God
It is easy to generalize as you go through life, but we must learn to differentiate. Success in life, destiny or ministry is in differentiating. Differentiate between what is holy and what is common; what is special to God and what is not special. Differentiate between people; all men are not the same in status, in life and in their standing before God. Sometimes ago, God spoke to me, He said “Son, all men are important to me, but not all men are important to you so as you go, learn to recognize those that are important to you”.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive sensitivity to differentiate between the holy and the common and between the common and the uncommon in Jesus’ name. Amen!
