Scripture for Thursday, December 14

Scripture for Thursday 12/14 ~ IF

Posted by on

The scripture for today, December 14 (12/14), is 1st Samuel 12:14 as found in the Old Testament of the Bible:

"IF you fear the Lord and serve and obey him and do not rebel against his commands, and IF both you and the king who reigns overyou follow the Lord your God ~ good!"

The Jews had just insisted on having a king rule over them instead of a supreme judge. Samuel replied and said IF. IF they serve and obey the Lord, and IF they both (people and king) follow the Lord, then it is good.

Today as then, some people live in a nation where the king/government does not follow the Lord. What to do? Galatians 5:22 tells us to be loving, joyful, peaceful, patient, kind, good, faithful, gentle, and self-controlled, for "against such things there is no law".

Is it hard to do this when crooked officials are getting all the advantages and you are being cheated? Indeed it is. It may seem they are on top of things. In reality, they are at the bottom. Never ever let others drag you down to their level. It is not worth it. Keep your eyes on God!

Hold fast!

     Stand firm!

          Do the right thing!

In the end, they will lose. You and God will win. That is good!
