Apart from God’s word stands man’s opinion. Simple logic for the spiritual man (1 Cor. 2:15), folly to the natural man (1 Cor. 2:14). Add to that the fact that many of the “spiritual” men look more to the world for their daily dealings than God’s word. Therefore, we live in a very foolish world. Anything goes.
Fortunately, there are a number of folks out there who have submitted wholly to God’s word and in a sense have conquered life. We should imitate these people. We should learn from them. We should glean from their successes and failures.
Need an example?….Gary North. The man has conquered life. He understands it. Why? Because he has been faithful to obey the words of the one who created it and sustains it. Learn from this man.
More importantly, teach your children the things you wish someone would have taught you when you were their age. Like what? Like THESE PRINCIPLES!
Glean from this list, live by it, and read it to your children.
