Scripture of the Day - August 22, 2012

Psalm 119:165 Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.

Have you ever tried to go fishing and have the mosquitoes drive you to distraction? You spend more time shooing the flies away than you do casting your bait in the river! You walk away with more fly bites than fish and you scratch for days at those annoying itches. But if you cover yourself with the proper protection you can fish with pleasure with nary a bite from those pesky mosquitoes. 
Now apply that scene to the spiritual. If you try to deal with the things of life using your own understanding, your own logic, it's like shooing the flies away while you're fishing. You'll be distracted from what's really important and you will end up bitten and suffering. But if you protect yourself with the law of God, if you are ruled by the law of God, the things others do will not affect you the same.
