The story is told of a little girl who was having a bad day… She was crabby, mean and just plain unhappy. Her Mother finally reminded her of her memory verse… ‘Thy word have I hid in my heart, that I might not sin against thee’. And the little girl replied, “It says, ‘Might not’, not ‘will not’.”
How many times do we look for loop-holes in the scripture?? It’s easy to read the scripture and see the truths, but the hard part is applying it to our lives.
Our world today is straying so far from the whole truths of God’s word. And many times we don’t like being different or ‘swimming up-stream’, so we try to make scripture fit our life style. When we should actually be fitting our life style to match what we read in scripture.
Do we try to add or take away from scripture?? Or do we live according to what we read, and do what God is asking us to do??It is a question I am constantly asking myself…
What you do will affect every area of your life!! (And the lives of those around you!!) As we take on the image of Christ it permeates our whole life.
