Isaiah 1:17 ” Stop doing wrong, learn to do right!”

The Lord is rather emphatic here…stop doing things that are contrary to His will.  Rather, practice what is morally good.    So just how do we learn to do right?  The Bible tells us that the starting point of knowledge is the fear of the Lord…so accepting Jesus as our Lord and Savior is that first step.  We then start the journey of learning who Jesus is…discovering the plan and purpose He has for us…and adding to our knowledge with daily Bible study and application.  Learning to do right is a life-long study of becoming more like Jesus every day.

Psalm 143:10 ” Teach me to do Your Will, for You are my God; may Your good spirit lead me on level ground.”

God is the source of all truth… and the starting point of gaining this knowledge is the fear of the Lord.  And as we learn to trust God, the closer we are drawn to Him and His love.  Finally, as He shepherds us, we are lead to safe ground…a stable and unchanging foundation where we can build our life and hope upon.
