    GOD'S RULES

    Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.
    PROVERBS 1:23

    A young woman remembered her girlhood with mixed feelings. When she had been younger, she had resisted every effort her parents had made to impose rules on her. She resented the fact that her mother and father continually told her what to do. Her usual response was, "When I have children of my own, I'll never treat them the way you treat me."

    When she did, in fact, have children of her own, the words came back to haunt her. She began to understand better why her parents had acted as they had. She began to see the wisdom in her parents actions and words. Her eyes were opened to the true intentions of her parents: to try to do what was best for their daughter.

    The rules and laws of God often have the same effect on us. We resist them, thinking that God doesn't want us to have any fun. If we will only realize that every rule. God's gifts is given out of perfect love for us, we can truly enjoy our lives the way God intends us to. By obeying, we learn more about God.

    Dear Heavenly Father, Help us to be obedient in Your will, Please help us not to question Your wisdom but to always trust You. If we do, understanding will follow. Amen and Amen.
