Are you like a lot of people when it comes to the instruction booklet with a new item? We stare at it and eventually toss it, guessing we can just figure it out.
Yeah…that usually ends like dropping a carton of eggs.
The Bible is there for a reason. God’s Word is healing and light and a guide for each of us. That’s why it’s important to read it, and meditate on the words.
To the church at Philippi, Paul gave instruction from God, such as putting others before ourselves. Then the payoff:
Philippians 2:15 says, “Shine...like the stars in the sky.”
God’s way is infinitely better. If we focus on the right things, our own needs are then met in ways too spectacular for us to imagine. Focus on others and sharing the Good News, and we stand out like stars in the night sky!
Do life the right way: Read the instructions.
Lord, you’ve shown us how to succeed in life and in the life to come. Help us share that with others. In Jesus' name. Amen.
