Doing it anyway
We know the right thing to do, we know what God wants us to do, we know what is best for us and yet we still do what we want to do anyway.
We have clear instructions so we can’t say we are confused when we chose to disregard God’s direction. Ever notice that when we do our own thing that we do it in style – not just a simple, quick expression of rebellion, but we go all out.
There are the things that slowly take us away from the things of God. God knows our human nature – our weakness and our strengths – and His instructions are there for our own good.
There are consequences for such actions too. It brings up the point we have heard many times – it’s not enough to know God’s Word or even to believe it, we must follow it and apply it to life’s daily activities and decisions.
I think it is a decision we make each day to take God seriously for even the wisest man in the world messed up – for we are not as strong as we may think.
