TEXT: Numbers 6:1-12

Key Verse: Numbers 6:12
“And he shall consecrate unto the LORD the days of his separation, and shall bring a lamb of the first year for a trespass offering: but the days that were before shall be lost, because his separation was defiled.”

DCLM Daily Manna 25 November 2021

When someone approaches his retirement age in the civil service or any other establishment, he tends to be more careful with his works as he does not want any act that would tarnish all the years he has put in. There have been cases of people who had kept a good record all through the many years they had served in an organisation only to have such clean record spoilt by a foolish act of crime or carelessness. Our passage today focuses on the vow and consecration of a Nazarite. Emphasis is placed on what should characterise the lifestyle of such a person.

Of particular note is the fact that the person must guard against everything that can get him defiled either deliberately or accidentally. He owes it a duty to seriously keep himself from defilement. If he, by chance, gets defiled either through a deliberate act or accidentally, he has voided his consecration and all the years he has put in are considered wasted. He will have to make atonement for his sins and start all over again.

It is appalling to realise that one wrong act of sin can completely ruin all the years of righteous records one has set. Sin cancels all the good account. God does not operate by the wrong idea of weighing our good acts against our bad acts. There must be no sin at all; no matter how small or insignificant it may appear before men. Again, no excuse will be tolerated for sin and defilement. It does not matter if it is deliberate, well calculated or it is unintentional. Sin is sin and it is polluting and damning.

Once we have made the decision to consecrate our lives to the Lord and live a righteous life, we must take it upon ourselves to consciously guard against sin. We cannot afford to be careless with our Christian lives. Yes, the grace of God is abundantly available to help us live the life that pleases Him but grace does not absolve us from our personal responsibilities. We must see to it that we are watchful at all times.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Don’t waste your years of consecration by an act of sin!
