COMMENT: There are some TV commercials that need to be “sacked” while there are others I really like because they can readily be used to illustrate a spiritual principle. One of the latter is the Nationwide Insurance TV commercial which features a gentleman driving a car in which he had evidently programmed his onboard navigational system to tell him how to reach his destination. You hear the devise directing him to turn this way and that way and he immediately obeys each command without a second thought. Finally he is astonished as his vehicle crashes into a store! The world system in which we live is continually giving us instructions as to how to live our lives. Here are just a couple: “He did you wrong, GET EVEN!”, “Pre-marital sex is okay, everyone is doing it.”and “All the church wants is money, money, money. It is hard enough living on !00%;  how can you possible give a tithe and live on the 90% that is left?” When we decide to follow these worldly directives, it is equivalent to building a sand castle too close to the water’s edge. It’s inevitable that the tide will flow in and cause disastrous results.
