If you really wanted us to be perfect,
you shouldn’t have given us a choice.
Freewill is a mixed blessing.
Some would say it’s a burden.
They would like to be able to rampage around
and not be held responsible.
They always blame the Devil.
to do the good is not so easy.
The “good” is a judgment call.
What is good for Jack may not be good for Jill.
So much depends on learning and experience.
The Ten Commandments are, after all, pretty general.
And the Golden Rule can be even more evasive
in actual practice.
Lord, your Spirit is our best guide.
Give us the wisdom to follow. Amen.
The LORD will guide you continually, and satisfy your needs in parched places, and make your bones strong; and you shall be like a watered garden, like a spring of water, whose waters never fail.
