I’m not surprised when Christians ignore or bemoan mandates. We’ve been ignoring and rejecting Biblical mandates for centuries.

  • “Go and make disciples” – Pastors job.
  • “care for widows and orphans” – Too hard.
  • “seek first the kingdom of God” – on Sundays.
  • “Deny yourself” – After Mardi Gras.
  • “pray in a private room” – Naa.
  • “give a tenth” – Legalistic.
  • “strive for unity” – if they agree with me.

Building our lives around the mandates that matter most will help us navigate worldly mandates with wisdom and discernment.
