Walk straight

Listen to the commandments of the Lord. Do not turn right or left, for then you’ll walk in disobedience. Observe His commandments day and night. Pay heed to His instruction and you’ll live in prosperity. Doing the will of the Father will take humility, but do not be discouraged, for God is with you! He will give you the strength to conquer whatever you face. Continue to walk straight.

A good story to compare this to is the one of Balaam and the donkey. When Balaam was on his journey an angel appeared in front of him, but he didn’t see it. His donkey swirled to the left and right. Later on Balaam spoke harshly to his donkey and then the donkey spoke. The angel was right in front of Balaam and he didn’t see it.

The correlation which I am trying to draw here is the fact that we are sometimes to blinded or to hard headed to follow the commandments of God. We need to soften our hearts and take up our cross.

Follow God! You’ll reap from your fruits.
