"From Your precepts I get understanding; Therefore I hate every false way." - PSALM 119:104
In our data-saturated society, we are awash in precepts. We have books, videos, tapes, seminars and Internet streaming. We go to pundits, professors, preachers, psychologists, psychiatrists and psychotherapists. Everybody layers us with more precepts for healthy living, family-raising, money-making and tulip-growing.
At last we shout, “I don’t need any more!” But God’s precepts, revealed in His Word, aren’t optional. They are not of the “take-it-or-leave-it” variety, but vital as the precepts of breathing. For those who take them seriously, God’s precepts provide operational reality for living at the highest level.
