Some things we buy come in pieces, and we need to put the pieces together. With these pieces comes a book with instructions on how to put the item together. A father might put a bicycle together for his child. He is happy that he followed the instructions.
Many mothers follow recipe instructions as they prepare meals for their family. They mix ingredients together and follow the instructions carefully. They want to prepare meals that taste good and are healthy.
The Bible is full of instructions for us. When we read the Bible, we can learn how to have our sins forgiven and how to serve God. God’s instructions teach us what is right and wrong. Verse 16 of our Bible Reading says, “All Scripture is given by God. And all Scripture is useful for teaching and for showing people what is wrong in their lives. It is useful for correcting faults and teaching the right way to live.”
Wise people trust God and follow His instructions!
