Pay Attention to the Owner’s Manual

Teach me, O Lord, to follow your decrees.
                          —Psalm 119:33

Irv Gordon’s 1966 Volvo clocked its 3 millionth mile in September 2013, the most miles ever driven by a single-owner of a non-commercial vehicle says Guinness.

Asked the secret of his car’s longevity he said, “It’s in the glove box. I read the owner’s manual, and I service the car just the way the book calls for it.”

“Your hands made me and formed me,” said the psalmist in Ps. 119. Sprinkled throughout that chapter is the writer’s declared determination to follow God’s maintenance instructions:

I will obey your decrees (v. 8).
I will not neglect your word (v. 16).
I will always obey your law (v. 44).

God made you. He knows best how your life should be lived. It’s in the Owner’s Manual. Check it out.
