“Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” Psalms 119:105
Almost everything that we buy comes with an instruction manual- instructions on how to put it together and/or how to operate it. If you are wise, you’ll read and follow the instructions. God has given us a manual too to help us get through life, it’s called the Bible. The Bible is life’s instruction manual.
When my daughter was little, we purchased a swing set for her. Unfortunately, it did not come already assembled. When we took it out of the box there were thousands of pieces– who knew where to start. If the swing set was going to be put together properly and safely, there was no getting around following the assembly instructions. We could have just started anywhere and stuck pieces together that looked like they belonged. If we had, we would have had a disaster on our hands. Do you know how many people foolishly try to live their lives without reading the manual– the Bible? They “stick” this here and that there; they follow their own way, taking matters into their own hands; doing what is right in their own eyes.
If you need to read and follow the owner’s material where material possessions are concerned, how much more do you need to follow the Bible where you spiritual well being is concerned. In order for your life to be one of peace and joy; in order for it to be “put together right” then you are going to have to read… and follow, the manual— the Bible.
