Books and Reflections
Long ago, God gave us His Book to consult for every need or difficulty that occurs in our lives. The Bible clearly presents the dilemmas that confronted many persons whose lives are detailed in its pages. Further, the good as well as the evil conduct of these individuals is often portrayed vividly.
The quandaries in these lives are similar to those we struggle with today. The decisions of numerous individuals are presented in this book to help us make proper and godly choices as required frequently while living in today’s world. God’s Word is as credible for our lives as it was for those who lived in former days.
Enduring life's daily problems and making appropriate decisions are often extremely difficult. Never before have we had access to such a myriad of books, media presentations, and lectures instructing us how to conduct our lives. Abundant resources are available to advise us about becoming happy, healthy, wealthy, wise, content, and fulfilled. Yet, on every hand, we observe unacceptable levels of lying, cheating, stealing, jealousy, slandering, cursing, infidelity, and various other evil acts. Rather than noting a decrease in these wicked exploits, multiplication of sinful deeds appears to be the norm in our day.
What can we do to curb the corruption that is rampant everywhere? Are there new untried methods for restoring righteousness in our lives and nation? Increased education, improved financial status, enhanced psychological training, and removing God from many venues have been largely ineffective in solving our problems. Could it be that we have been looking in the wrong places to resolve these ongoing crises?
