“Trust in the Lord and do good….” Ps. 37:3
A dear brother has just stopped me to ask a lot of useless questions about the difference between tweedledum and tweedledee. Was it Josh Billings who said, “I’d rather know a few things for certain than be sure of a lot of things that ain’t so”? The Bible is a spiritual cafeteria, not a curiosity shop. These Bible punsters who are always exercising themselves in things too wonderful for them should move over from the dissecting room to the dining room! One may be an expert in calories and vitamins—and starve to death!
If these dear souls who are forever hunting Bible conundrums would only heed the Bible commandments! One thinks of the fable of the mother bear teaching her cubs to walk. One asked, “Mother, which foot shall I put forward first?” She retorted, “Shut up and walk!”
Get on the old T and O, brother, the Trust and Obey. Then go as deep as you can but at heart stick to the great simplicities, believe on his Name, and love one another.
For there’s no other way to be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.
