I am speaking for myself in particular with reference to living by God’s Word, the Bible. While it is humanly impossible to follow and abide by The Ten Commandments, I know what Jesus has done for me to live in God’s favor, grace and protection. I don’t booze, party, smoke or do any of the vices that some young people find themselves addicted to. Those foolish youngsters who spend much time partying in a discotheque and spending money frivolously on spirits and booze, will find themselves come under the law to discipline them. After all it is not seldom I read in the press of dozens of young people getting themselves arrested for boozing and taking drugs in the discotheque. Though I have been in a discotheque before, I never liked the atmosphere, as too much cigarette smoke abundant in the enclosed area makes my hair smell of nicotine for days. I shudder to think what this will do to my lungs!
I spend my mornings reading God’s Word, the Bible. My routine is reading a chapter of Proverbs each day that commensurate with the day of the month, a chapter of Psalms 91 for protection, Colossians 3:12 to be gentle and to forgive and Psalms chapter 1 on blessings. I don’t consider this a drudgery but sometime that comes naturally to me.
