Before we head into the New Testament, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the compelling ideas of the Old Testament. These are posts that were meaningful to me and popular with readers.
The covenant-making promise-keeping God. God is always true to his word. That applied to his promise to bless Israel when they kept their agreements with him, as well as to his promise to curse them when they broke their pledge. But God remains faithful to us even when we are unfaithful to him.
Who decides what’s right? Opinions come and go. Like sheep, we tend to follow the idea of the day rather than basing our thoughts and actions on God’s word.
Teach your children well. There is a right way to bring children up in the nurture and admonition of the LORD. Are you using it?
