Christmas is coming!





How many observe Christ's birthday!
How few, His precepts!



-Benjamin Franklin

That is so true! It's amazing! Reminds me of a similar "type" of quote that I think I found in your archives -- from Andrew Murray, it said something to the effect of: "I have heard many people say, 'I accept all the promises of God within this [Bible]', but so few have said 'I choose to obey every commandment in this [Bible]'." Or something like that... but it was really cool!

Very profound. Sadly, it's so true! I just read in one of my devotionals: "...to keep strictly in the path of your Savior's command is better than any outward form of religion...".

true, TRUE!! Its easy to say, "I want to follow His precepts." But how easily I forget, when offered something that fulfills my self. It can be very frustrating- yet God's abundant grace is amazing in its strength. Thanks for posting, Bethany! As usual, what a blessing!
