I love my bible because unbelievably it holds lessons that teach us about life. Those lessons deal with just about every situation life throws at you. Jesus used parables to teach everybody. Some of those parables went over the heads of those such as the Sadducees, Pharisees and the like because they were deluded by their own agendas. They thought Jesus was just another prophet and did not hear what He was saying. Jesus explained those parables to His disciples. I love Matthew 13:10-15. Seeing they do not see and hearing they do not hear or understand. Those words is the beginning of the verses in Matthew
The Book of Psalms and Proverbs hold a wealth of information for us to live by. When I need understanding, I take my bible and start reading. Psalms 10:1-4 is awesome. “Why, O Lord, do you stand far off? Why do you hide yourself in time of trouble? In his arrogance, the wicked man hunts down the weak, who are caught in the schemes he devises. He boasts of the cravings of his heart; he blesses the greedy and reviles the Lord. In his pride the wicked does not seek him; in all his thoughts there is no room for God” One of my favorite proverbs is 16:23. “A wise man’s heart guides his mouth, and his lips promote instruction.” Psalms and Proverbs hold many truths and instructions about handling various situations. Causing harm to others and ourselves just for the heck of it does not solve problems. It doesn’t help any situation if we burn our bridges as we cross over them. Sometimes we need to retrace our steps to solve situations as they arise. If we lived according to Gods instruction book this old world would be a far better place to live and a lot more people would be happy, thankful and filled with so much praise that Satan would put on his running shoes so he could get away from us. The old adages hold truths that are in Gods instruction manual. What instruction manual you ask well it is none other than The Holy Bible.
