"My son, keep your father’s commands and do not forsake your mother’s teaching. Bind them upon your heart forever; fasten them around your neck. When you walk, they will guide you; when you sleep, they will watch over you; when you awake, they will speak to you. For these commands are a lamp, this teaching is a light, and the corrections of discipline are the way to life..."
I love these kind of verses. They remind me of the blessings and benefits of keeping the Lord's commands and teachings. There are several benefits:
1. They will guide me
2. They will watch over me
3. They will speak to me
4. They are a lamp
5. They are a light
6. They are the way to LIFE
I don't know about you, but I love this. O how I need to be guided, I want to be watched over, I want the Lord to continually speak to me through His Word, I need a lamp and light for my path. But more than all of that, I want to live. I want to experience LIFE in the fullest and most abundant way intended by the Lord. Do you want to live? What is your way to LIFE?
