26 “See, I am setting before you today a blessing and a curse: 27 the blessing, if you obey the commandments of the Lord your God, which I command you today, 28 and the curse, if you do not obey the commandments of the Lord your God, but turn aside from the way that I am commanding you today, to go after other gods that you have not known. (Deuteronomy 11:26-28, ESV)
This option was presented to the nation of Israel after receiving the law. There is still a principle for us. Doing things God’s way is always better than trying to do it our way. Do you want to know how to have a good marriage? Read the Bible. Want to know how to get along with your squad members? Read the Bible. Get the point? Doing things God’s way is always going to bring blessings.
Prayer: Lord, as for me (and my house), I will serve the Lord.
