Follow God’s Word

My stove has a self-cleaning oven. Recently I baked a peach pie in the oven, and some of the pie dripped onto the bottom of the oven. I decided it was time to clean my oven.
I started the cleaning cycle, but when it was finished, there was still peach pie stuck to the bottom of the oven. The next day I decided to try cleaning the oven again. This time I followed the instructions in my owner’s manual. I realized that I had missed one important step in the cleaning process. When I followed the instructions carefully, I had a clean oven.
God has given us His instruction manual — the Bible. When we read His Word carefully and then apply His teachings to our lives, we will stay close to Him. We should be like the writer of Psalm 25. “Lord, help me learn your ways. Show me how you want me to live. Guide me and teach me your truths” (verses 4-5a)
