the price of doing it our way


January 2016 (31)Ecclesiastes 8:4-6

4 Since the word of the king rules, and who is going to ask him, “What are you doing?” 5 Whoever keeps a command will not know the suffering that disobedience causes, and the wise heart will know the proper time and the appropriate way to act. 6 Because there is a time and a way for everything, even when a man’s trouble is bearing down on him.

the price of doing it our way

We live in a generation that idolizes disobedience and rebellion. We need to know the wisdom that sees rebellion as a cause of suffering. As long as we keep putting rebels – people who insist on doing things their way – on pedestals, we are going to keep creating more suffering. Whether politicians, poets or performers, we need to choose heroes who know how to play by the rules.

LORD, give us the wisdom to honour those who do things the right way, not their own way.
