“My son, despise not the chastening of the LORD; neither be weary of his correction: Proverbs 3:11″
Our compass for life is the Bible, which keeps us headed in the correct direction.The opening verse of the Bible, which serves as our moral guide, opens with the warning: “My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart observe my commandments.” The warning brings the mind and the heart into alignment. God’s Word must be concealed in our hearts, just as the Psalmist claimed to have done. It is not enough to simply know God’s Word in our brains. In the rush and confusion of life, God’s Word might be pushed from our consciousness. The pressure of work, peer pressure, and other distractions can work together to push God’s Word from our minds. But when God’s Word is in our hearts, it takes centre stage at all times. As Christians, knowing about God’s Word simply entails a learning process; nevertheless, learning about God’s Word in our hearts entails a loving process. The motive is “I have to” when the mind is focused on a problem. The motive of the will is “I ought to” when it is involved in a matter. The motive is “I want to” when the heart is invested in a matter.
O Lord, do not living become a distraction to make God’s word prominent in my heart. Amen.
