“For you hate discipline, and you cast My words behind you.   “When you see a thief, you are pleased with him, and you associate with adulterers.”  (Psalm 50:17-18)


Such is the way of the world.  Leave behind the commands of the Lord and justify behavior by hanging out with those who sin boldly.  It has been happening since the beginning, but the call to you is to turn to the Lord and learn from Him the way life is supposed to be lived.  Come to the Lord and see that His ways are right and good.  Know the Word of the Lord and know wisdom.


All around me Lord is the reinforcement of living a life that serves the self.  I see what we call entertainment supporting this and tearing down the barriers that Your commandments have made.  Guide me O Lord that I would walk in Your ways and learn from You the way life was created to be lived.  Help me O Lord to come to You and turn away from the temptations of this world.


Lord Jesus, You walked in the middle of the mess of this world in order to lift up with You all who would come to You.  Guide me now and always to walk in Your ways that I would learn from You righteousness.  Lead me today and by Your grace help me to follow.  Help me learn to love the way You have established and to look to You for all things to live through all things.  Amen.
