Good Morning January 26

In our modern culture, when one holds to certain standards and values, about marriage for example, they are often called “old fashioned”. Many are so taken with the idea of progress that they believe anything older than 50 years is long out dated, and must be discarded. But there are certain values given by our Lord for the good of the people He created. These do not change. When we speak of the sanctity of marriage as God intended, sexual relations only within its heterosexual context, and all of the values coming from the Ten Commandments, these are not old fashioned. They are the way God intends that we find the best life for ourselves, and in harmony with Him. God’s word to our world through the Prophet Jeremiah is fitting. “Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.”(6:16) As much as people would like to remake the world by their modern values, there are some things that cannot be improved. “I the LORD do not change.” (Malachi 3:6)
