“Happy are those who keep his decrees, who seek him with their whole heart.” – Psalm 119:2
RULE BREAKER! Something that generally doesn’t come into my mind often. I try my hardest to follow the rules. I pay my bills on time, am always punctual for work, file my taxes, and follow the speed limit(well, most of the time on that last one).
Some rules though are harder to follow; for example, the Ten Commandments, to give just a sample of God’s word. While some are easier to follow…Thou shall not kill…Steal…Worship other gods, some can be much harder… Keeping the Sabbath Holy…Honor your Mother and Father…Coveting your Neighbor’s things. There’s a lot of commotion around in today’s society blocking the things that really matter – putting God first, to carefully and diligently read his word and follow him. As this Psalmist writes, only those who have a true desire, without hypocrisy or selfish reasons, to walk with the Lord, are blessed. Keeping his testimony in your heart and letting him influence our lives is the only way to salvation and grace.
Prayer: Lord, let us keep your word and walk with you every day. Let us be influenced by your guidance and teach others to do the same. With our whole hearts, in Jesus name we pray. AMEN.
