Seeing life's events in the light of God's Word.

“Google It” Spiritual Style

on August 10, 2014

Psalm 119:105- “Your word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.”

I was visiting with my parents when a question about plant fertilizers came up. Dad, of course, touted the benefits of steer manure. Mother brought up the effectiveness of a well-known national brand on indoor plants. My husband suggested that a mixture of certain ones might be optimum.

Having no opinion, but still wanting to be part of the conversation, I suggested that we “GOOGLE IT”. After all, just about everything we need to know, is right there at our fingertips. Isn’t it?

But, what about questions of a spiritual nature? For instance, how should we respond to those who hurt us? What should we do with feelings of inadequacy, sadness, betrayal?

Proverbs 14:12 says, “there is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.” We are told that it is God’s Word that provides the answers for all of our concerns and problems.

Christian bookstores are filled with enjoyable and uplifting books, both fiction and non-fiction. These can be helpful and offer directions on a myriad of subjects, but none of them is a substitute for the scriptures, the indisputable Word of God.

So, whether you see an answer to a Biblical truth or just need encouragement for your day, try “Googling It” spiritual style and turn to our ultimate source, The Bible.
