Then, I happened to think of the words "ancient path" which I remember reading in a verse a while ago. Strange, I thought, why would I think of the word ANCIENT, when I should be thinking NEW?
It suddenly came together for me this morning as I read these two verses:
With the ancient is wisdom; and in length of days understanding.
Remove not the ancient landmark, which thy fathers have set.
It's not always about new. Sometimes old is better. In fact many times old is best. The best advice comes from those who have been around the block a few times. And it also comes from Scripture, which has been around even longer.
So, this year, I will let Scripture be my guide. I will read books from the late 1800’s and early 1900’s that have the audacity to talk about the 'right way' to do things; about morals, and precepts and commands and laws. Have we forgotten?
"Stay between the lines. . .the lines are our friends."
I need a few more friends on the straight and narrow road this year. How about you?
