Bible is not an instruction manual on how to go to Heaven. It’s a Book given to us by God through His servants, primarily meant to reveal Himself and His plan of redemption for the sinners. It’s only then that the Bible is meant as God’s law for redeemed sinners like us, to walk in the path of righteousness. In this passage, we learn how the Bible is also meant to bring us comfort.
We live in a culture that speaks to us and influences our lives through songs, movies and other cultural entertainment. This kind of exposure is inevitable which often shapes our thinking and lifestyle in subtle ways. But Christian life is not designed to be lived under the influence of this world. In this passage, we learn what kind of pattern the Lord has set for us as Christians, and how we are called to live in accordance with His word, so that our lives are shaped by His counsel, and not by the culture.
