2 Chronicles 33:1-25; Daniel 1:1-21; 1 John 3:1-24

Only take heed to thyself, and keep thy soul diligently. Deuteronomy 4:9

There are certain necessities we have to face in life that cannot be learned except under the pressure of potential failure. We don’t know what to avoid if we don’t know the danger to the spiritual life we possess. That is why God allows things to cross our paths that He knows will be difficult for us. The reality of who we are in Christ is made evident under tension. By these lessons God prepares us for the service He wants us to perform. Often our most sincere devotion and worship comes after victory over temptation and potential defeat. —G. C. G.

It is good to go back and follow the path—
The way the Lord has led until now. —G. C. G
