The words spoken in these verses are forthright and need no interpretation. If we would follow the instructions provided by God, many of our problems would never occur. It is the focus of our heart’s desire that sometimes causes us problems. Our five senses: sight, hearing, touch, smell and taste allow us to understand the world around us. God created them for that very reason. However, we are allowed to choose what to look at, to hear, to touch, etc. When we choose to follow God and keep our focus on the things of Him, we will never fall. God also gave us His word, the Bible. Throughout the Bible we are given instructions on how to conduct ourselves. We are given information so we can make good decisions which produce good fruit. It also provides examples of what the consequences can be if we do not follow God’s ways .
God knew we’d fall from time to time but He provided a way to return to Him through His son, Christ Jesus. Halleluia!
