Many people when getting acquainted with some one will ask a question. "What's your sign?" They refer to the zodiac, daily horoscope, astrology, which is forbidden by God. "And beware, lest you lift up your eyes to heaven and see the sun and the moon and the stars, all the hosts of heaven, and be drawn away and worship them and serve them, those which the Lord your God has allotted to all the peoples under the whole heaven,
(Deuteronomy 4:19 NAS)."
It is not harmless entertainment. Seeking the counsel of the creation, rather than the creator is folly and rejection of God. "You are wearied with your many counsels; let now the astrologers, those who prophecy by the stars, those who predict by the new moons, stand up and save you from what will come upon you (Isaiah 47:13 NAS)." The following two verses explain they are unable to even deliver themselves!
Maybe we should answer their question with a question "What's your shine?" We need the shine sent straight from above, even far above the stars others foolishly use to guide their lives. "And those who have insight will shine brightly like the brightness of the expanse of heaven, and those who lead the many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever (Daniel 12:3 NAS)." When we lead the way to the Lord, we will have the shine of our savior!
