IGNORING THE OBVIOUS

Perhaps you remember the cartoon strip, Calvin and Hobbes. Calvin is a little boy with an overactive imagination and a stuffed tiger, Hobbes, who comes to life as his imaginary friend. In one cartoon strip, Calvin turns to his friend Hobbes and says, “I feel bad I called Susie names and hurt her feelings. I’m sorry I did that.” Hobbes replies, “Maybe you should apologize to her.” Calvin thinks about it for a moment and then responds, “I keep hoping there’s a less obvious solution.”

Many times we ignore the obvious solutions to our problems that the word of God has revealed to us. Many have the belligerent attitude of those in Jeremiah’s day, “As for the word that thou hast spoken unto us in the name of Jehovah, we will not hearken unto thee. But we will certainly perform every word that is gone forth out of our mouth…” (Jer. 44:16-17). Others thinks that biblical solutions are too difficult, or simply something they would rather not do as was the case of some in Jesus day who did not like what Jesus taught, “Many therefore of his disciples, when the heard this, said, This is a hard saying; who can hear it?…Upon this many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him” (Jn. 6:60, 66). The obvious solutions to our problems are not always easy – but the answer is found in the word of God.

Friends, God’s word has the resolution to all our problems (2 Pet. 1:3) – thus, trust and obey His revealed solutions. Your happiness and eternal destiny depends on it.

Think About It!

Have A Great Day!
