The Pastor's Pen
During these days of Covid our grocery store has installed signs on alternate isles saying "right way" or "wrong way" to help provide "social distancing" while shopping. Some shoppers walk up and down the aisles and do not notice the signs while others do not seem to care about going the "right way."
God's Word tells us there is a right way to experience God's blessings. "Blessed is every one that feareth the Lord; that walketh in His ways (Psalm 128:1)". God is not telling us to be scared of Him. He is telling us to show respect or reverence. In Genesis 19, Lot does not show reverence to what God says. Rather, he argues with God until he sees the burning cities of Sodom and Gomorra, realizing the reality of God's judgment upon those who do not listen to him. Simply they show no fear of God nor respect Him for what He tells them.
The second thought in Psalm 128 is to walk in His ways. None of us would walk carelessly through a minefield or climb over rocks that are known to be filled with poisonous snakes . God's blessing comes when we walk carefully and listen to what God tells us in His Word.
When we go the "right way" He can bless us!
We have available a quarterly devotional booklet (Days of Praise) that gives understanding of God's Word on a daily basis. If you would like a copy, contact us, and we will be happy to mail you the current edition.
Sincerely in Christ,
Pastor Robert Kurtz
