mingling without adopting

Psalm 106:34-39 (JDV)

Psalm 106:34 They did not exterminate the peoples as Yahveh had commanded them
Psalm 106:35 but mingled with the nations and adopted what they had made.
Psalm 106:36 They served their idols, which became a snare to them.
Psalm 106:37 They sacrificed their sons and daughters to demons.
Psalm 106:38 They shed innocent blood – the blood of their sons and daughters whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan; so the land became polluted with blood.
Psalm 106:39 They defiled themselves by what they had done and prostituted themselves by their deeds.

God has not commanded us to exterminate the unbelievers around us. He has commanded us to reach them with the gospel, which will require us to go to them — and to allow them to come to us. But we still need to avoid adopting their ways, serving their gods, and sacrificing our children.

LORD, show us how to reach the lost among us, without joining their rebellion.
