What exactly does be careful mean? The dictionary says this:
making sure of avoiding potential danger, mishap, or harm; cautious. And this:
done with or showing thought and attention.
Then there’s the part about obeying. It’s important that we submit to God’s authority. Going against Him leads to danger and mishaps in our lives. Which we see in the definition of careful; we want to avoid potential danger or mishaps. The whole thing is a “no duh” to me. I don’t know about others. What do you think this scripture means about being careful and obeying God?
In the last part of the verse, it informs us that we would be pleasing God when we do what is good and right.
I rather like to please God. Don’t you? It would make things in life move along better.
To be pleasing to God I must be in His word. I must apply His word to my life. I must work at being righteous and be like Christ. What would you do?
Dear Father God, make it known, without question, what I need to be doing to please You. I also pray the readers of this blog to be blessed and to be pleasing to You. In Jesus’ name, amen.
