Over the years I have worked with several congregations and several church schools and I have come to accept one thing. I do not know anyone whose life was messed up by living by God’s instructions and standards. Yet today we seem to have a country where God’s standards are an infringement on our lives. But in this world of desiring our personal freedom, we find that we are not getting better, but worse. Do we need to be reminded that the Psalmist says that the man who is blessed is the man who finds that “his delight is in the law of the Lord and on his law he meditates day and night”. You see, God’s boundaries are not meant to hinder, but to guide, protect, and to make life good. You might want to find time today to “meditate on His law”.
This was received from my minister, R. Wayne White of Web Chapel Church of Christ in Farmers Branch, Texas.
