Give me an undivided mind to fear Your name.”
– Psalm 86:11
As we look at our world today, a lot of crooked lines are being painted. One explanation for all these crooked lines is that too often we try to do things our own way. We take shortcuts that wind up costing us time and generating frustration. We don’t have the right tools on hand, or even worse, we don’t bother to follow the instructions for doing the job. Too often, we fail to stretch the string to help walk a straight line to the other end. What a great reminder we have in Psalms about the importance of walking straight and upright before God. God and His Word are our string. When we walk according to His direction, He will give us what is good and multiply our blessings. When we walk following His string, our paths will be straight.
Heavenly Father, thank You for Your string. Give me the wisdom to stretch it out and apply it to every aspect of our lives. Teach us to walk the straight path with You. Amen.
