Goals in Life (1)

Today and for the next few days we will look at the same Bible verses. These verses teach us some very important things. Each day we will look at a different goal that Christians should have in their lives.
Verse 33 of our Bible Reading says, “Lord, teach me your laws, and I will follow them.” These laws are a set of rules that will help us be strong Christians. I admire people who have studied God’s Word (the Bible). Often these people can remember many Bible verses. When they are faced with hard decisions, these verses give them wisdom.
Psalm chapter 1 talks about people who think about God’s Word day and night. These people have a strong faith. We can have a strong faith, too, if we will learn about God’s laws and follow them. How can we do this? We need to read and study the Bible. God will bless us and give us joy if we learn His laws.
We should want to learn more about God’s laws. But we should not want to learn so other people will think we are smart. Instead, we should want to learn so we can please and honor God.
