Lighting the Way
Written By: Chris Mace
The Psalmist considered God’s instructions and encouragements to be a blessing. They were true, not to be neglected, or rebelled against but were a “light” in a difficult and harsh world where he groped for meaning. They led to knowledge, understanding, wisdom and the power to live as God intended him to live —honoring God and his fellow humans in healthy, loving ways.
God’s words do that. They are amazingly impactful because they are “living and active” and so sharp that they judge the thoughts and attitudes of our hearts. If we listen, they will confront us and then guide us into what is what is right and best.
They lead us to redemption.
May we experience that kind of a week!
