We are often like little kids who get told ‘no’. Like us, they are appalled that someone would correct them from doing what they want to do. Today’s psalm reminds us that God’s commands are blessings to us and help keep us safe and blessed. Instead of seeing them as cramping our style, we should see them as gifts to make our lives the best they can possibly be.

Ezekiel 44:1-45:12:

  • 9-14 – Though the Levites responsibilities for the temple were not completely revoked, they were punished for leading others to worship foreign gods and idols.
  • 28-31 – God assured that the Levite priests were well taken care of so they didn’t need to acquire wealth anyway other than how God provided for them.

1 Peter 1:1-12:

  • 1-2 – This letter was written by Peter or by someone whose faith originated from Peter’s ministry. People often attributed their works to their teachers or leaders.
  • 6-9 – We can rejoice even when we face trials because our salvation means we have ultimate hope.

Psalm 119:17-32:

  • 18-24 – When do we ever beg for God’s rules and commandments? We forget that they are blessings to us and are meant for our good.

Proverbs 28:8-10:

  • 10 – Throughout Scripture we are warned against leading others into sin.
