     Young men (and women) must make the word of God their rule; that will do more towards the cleansing of young men than the laws of princes or the morals of philosophers.  They must carefully apply that rule as a standard and steer by that chart and compass. [Matthew Henry].


     Be sure of this, that when the Lord is about to favour you with some great and peculiar blessing, He may prepare you for it by some great and peculiar trial. If He is about to advance you to some honour He may first lay you low that He may exalt you.

     If He is about to bless you in a sphere of great and distinguished usefulness, He may first place you in His school, that you may know how to teach others.  If He is about to bring forth your righteousness as the noon day, He may cause it to pass under a cloud, that, emerging from its momentary obscuration, it may shine with richer and more enduring lustre. Thus does He deal with all His people.

[Octavius Winslow, in his Work of the Holy Spirit].


     When God formed the nation of Israel He gave them a set of instructions by which to govern their lives and country.  These are known as the Ten Commandments and they were given to Moses.  They are recorded in Exodus 20 and also in Deuteronomy 5.

     The first four commandments have to do with our relationship to God, while the second six are how we relate to our fellow man.  Unfortunately, society today pays little attention to God’s law, and the children are not taught obedience to it.  Hence, society is in a mess, and the world wonders why.

     What a wonderful world it would be if we didn’t have to listen to the daily reports of shootings and stabbings, and broken marriages through adultery, and no stealing, car thefts and other robberies.  Imagine a world where there is no dishonesty, lying or covetousness.

    Such a world isn’t going to happen here because of the sinfulness of the human heart.  By contrast heaven will be a joyful place where God’s law will always be kept.  It is a place where no sin will be allowed to enter. [Rev. 21:27].
