Life Lessons from Long, Long, Ago

Sometimes the greatest lessons come from long, long ago. Such is always the case when it comes to the Bible, isn’t it? No matter how long ago the people in the Bible lived, the life lessons we learn from their true stories are timeless and priceless. There is no better counsel in the universe than from the Lord Himself, and no greater lessons learned from others’ stories than from the people of the Bible.

So why is it we spend so much of our lives looking for wisdom from everywhere but the Lord, and why do we look to others as role models more than we look to those the Lord chose to be in His Word? Because of our humanness, our ignorance, our foolishness, our pride, our rebellion, and our obstinacy. As I shared with someone I met on the beach just the other day as I tagged alongside two of Walk by Faith Ministry’s wheelchair dogs, who are we to dare to put anyone or anything above the Lord and His Word?

Who are we to place television, movies, magazines, radio, our social lives, our jobs, our dreams, anyone or anything above the Creator of the universe? Yet we do, don’t we? But while we are still alive and breathing, it is not too late to turn our priorities around and to place them in their right order. The Lord first. The Bible. Our lives.

Our lives are best lived, after all, when we seek the Lord above all else and commit ourselves to live unto His ways.

Mat 6:33  But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. 

Isa 55:6  Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: 

Isa 55:7  Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
