When working with things that are highly complex,
having a MANUAL showing how something works or fits
together is essential. Without any context,
figuring out the answer is a guessing game at best
and certain failure at worst.
This is even more true when managing the three most important
things in this world — Money,
Children and Life! Trying to successfully
navigate these with NO CONTEXT can and will be difficult.
The Latin prefix 'con' in 'context'
means 'with,' so context literally
means '(having) WITH Text,'
and there is no greater text that has ever been written as a
life manual in this world as the Bible. In it is not only the
explanation of why things aren’t working in life,
but also understanding how to put life back on track
when things go completely wrong.
However, instead of using God’s
'Life Manual' as a guide for living,
many instead choose NO CONTEXT except
what seems or feels right. While working from
a blank piece of paper gives unrestricted freedom
to write your own text, it opens up
unlimited opportunities to fail.
Instead God has given us a Sure-Fire Text Book
that will not only lead us through the challenges of this life,
but also shows the way to both safety and eternity, and that
'context' is THE BIBLE.
Friend, as today’s scripture verse exhorts us,
LISTEN and PAY ATTENTION God’s instructions in this/his
text, and watch life work and fit together as it should.
