I love Dove Chocolates. It's not just about the chocolates, it's also about the message that is printed on the inside of the wrapper. Although I don't believe in horoscopes or fortunes in fortune cookies, or mes-sages on Dove Chocolate wrappers, I am intrigued from time to time to see what the message has to say. Today, the first one I opened said "you are never too old, and it is never too late." This one made me laugh out loud. Because if any of you have been around me lately, you know that I am constantly complaining about being to old to go back to school and take classes. So out of curiosity I thought I better have another chocolate, the second message told me to "book the flight." Now that's more like it. Indeed, I would rather be anywhere but sitting in a chair studying on a warm sunny day.
I could keep eating chocolates in search of the message that would suit me but I know I cannot take these messages to heart.
God's Word however, is a different story!
Paul told Timothy in 2 Timothy 3:13-17 that, "13 while evildoers and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. 14 But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have be-come convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, 15 and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. 16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God[a may be thoroughly equipped for every good work."
Everything we need to know about ourselves and our eternal destiny is laid out for us between the books of Genesis and Revelations.
Psalm 119:105 says, "God's word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path."
Nothing better than God's wisdom for us in writing!
And guess what you're not too old and it's not too late to learn what it has to say to you!
Happy Summer everyone!
