The Kitchen Table  Day 23

Today’s Reading:  Psalm 112:1-9; Duet 4:1-14; 1 John 5:2-5

Praise the Lord!  Blessed is the man who fears the Lord,

who greatly delights in His commandments.  Ps 112:1

Each one of us must decide how we’re going to live our lives.  That decision will be made in the heart, not the head.  We will live for what we love.  Obedience is tied to the heart, not just the head.   John writes, “For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments.” (1 John 5:3)  The love of God is life and we possess our lives through what we love.  There’s no escaping it.  We can know what we love by how we live because we will live for what we love.  The 10 commandments told us two things:  1. How to live in God’s love and 2. Why we don’t.  Blessed, happy, is the person who fears life outside of God’s love and loves the life and love of God by living in the life and love of God.
