As we walk each day on the pathway of life we can learn many lessons if we are alert and have our ears and eyes open.

There were two men on a river bank and one man asked the other, “Do you think it necessary in the Lord’s eyes to repent of every little sin which we commit?”

The other man responded, “Yes, because the act of repentance encourages a humble heart toward the Lord and strengthens our walls of resistance against pride.”

I would be truly grateful to the Lord if I could help people understand that we have the ability to make a choice as to the kind of life we want to live. In the Bible, a good book to study as to what kind of life we have a desire to live is Galatians, Chapter 5. We see in Verse 17 that the spirit of man and the flesh of man are contrary, the one to the other. We can choose to lvie by the fruit of the spirit in Jesus Christ which is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith against such there is no law and therefore lead to a good and happy life with contentment. Or we can live by the works of the flesh, which are adultery, revellings, fornications uncleanliness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, strife, seditioin heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness and such like which not only will lead to a life of agony, distress and bitterness while on this earth, but will rob us of that eternal life in heaven.
