“Judah is my lawgiver; Moab is my washpot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe” – Psalm 60:7b-8a

Throwing a shoe in middle Eastern culture was a sign of intense disrespect, and it is really bad when God says he will (figuratively) throw his shoe over a whole people group!

Fact is, God judges by people groups, even now.

Notice the term,”nations” in this verse and who said it:

“When the Son of man shall come in his glory … before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them [the nations] one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats” – Jesus (Matt. 25:31-32)

There is one exception!

“[P]ut on the new man … where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.” – Colossians 3:9b-11

Those who put on Christ are his people group regardless of where they come from.

“[T]hou … hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation” – Revelation 5:9b

Jesus’ redemption crosses all boundaries, people groups, and genders.

Thank God for Christ!
