In this day, as we look at elections in the USA and problems all around the world. Sometimes we have to wonder if young men and women still can grow in faith, and Christian living.
I seem to find that it is ironically the thing that so many don’t want to do, which holds the key. We simply need to look back at the words that made others great.
As I strive to keep my own Christian life strong I was drawn to this section of this wonderful passage written by David, so many years ago. The question asked f a young man, tasked with the difficulty of not losing, and taking care of so many sheep. We only really need to care for one life, our own. So give this a re-look, cause might have read this long ago as well.
Maybe it brings you some comfort, or even helps you get back on the right track for your life!
How can a young person stay on the path of purity?
By living according to your word.
I seek you with all my heart;
do not let me stray from your commands.
I have hidden your word in my heart
that I might not sin against you.
Praise be to you, Lord;
teach me your decrees.
With my lips I recount
all the laws that come from your mouth.
I rejoice in following your statutes
as one rejoices in great riches.
I meditate on your precepts
and consider your ways.
I delight in your decrees;
I will not neglect your word.
