What is right? What is wrong? What is truth? What is false? What is good? What is bad? What is holy? What is evil?
Everyone has an opinion. I have an opinion. Who’s is right? My heart is easily deceived. My heart has a definite bent toward error.
There is a God, I know that, everybody knows that, He put that awareness in us. He created everything that exists. He is infinitely powerful. He is infinitely wise. He is infinitely good.
God created us in His image. He created us to be with Him, to know Him, to enjoy Him, and to love Him. He has communicated to us what is truth. He has communicated to us what is right and good. He has over the years orchastrated the writing of the Bible, His Word.
Psalms 19:7-8 The law of the Lord is perfect, restoring the soul;
The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.
The precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart;
The commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.
I want to know what is right and how to act right, so I read the Bible every day. I have a goal of reading 12 chapters every day, not to impress, but to know what is true. I study the Bible every day, attempting to decern what God wants me to know about Him, what His perfect will is for my life, and to know wisdom. I spend 30 minutes every day memorizing key portions of the Bible so I can meditate on it, so it will penetrate my heart and change my character to be like God’s.
