Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he. – Proverbs 29:18
The post “Anchored to His Commandments” had some thoughts about Moses giving the people confidence in providence. He gave them a vision for their future and was preparing them for the Promised Land; a land flowing with milk and honey. To maintain that vision and preparation, Moses pointed out the importance of following the Ten Commandments.
We have a duty to God in how we live and an obligation to our neighbors. With the Ten Commandments, we are anchored to these laws of God and see others the way God sees them. Everyone is equal in His eyes; endowed with unalienable rights like life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
Like the song Confidence by Sanctus Real, by following God’s commandments, we build a society of assurance for the future. Stepping ahead with faith like Daniel in the lion’s den, hope like Moses in the wilderness, and a heart like David to take action. The Lord will be our defense as we face our giants with confidence.
