A Simple Lesson - Application

In this day and age there is information everywhere and it's much more accessible than it was in the past. The information available today runs the gamut from worthwhile - how to be a good friend, to useless - DIY hacks.

Since there is nothing new under the sun, a lot of worthwhile information is found in the Bible.

However, because we are inundated with so much we have become obese with information. We're not using the information we have received. We are at the point where we need to start applying the information that we have gathered.

Be better people, don't lie, don't steal, enjoy life, live peaceably with all, and don't be anxious.

These are simple lessons that are found in the Word that are foundational to our growth.

But blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence. They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water.Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit. Jeremiah 17:7,8 [NLT]
Remember, "Large streams from little fountains flow, tall oaks from little acorns grow."(excerpted from a poem by David Parks)

Let's start applying the Word. How do you apply scripture to your daily life?
