The scripture for today, March 10, is Colossians 3:10 as found in the New Testament of the Bible:
Did you ever make something with your hands and it was your pride and joy? Were you so proud of it that you would stop at nothing to take care of it and make sure that it lasted forever? Yes, you had a few rules about its care. You had a few rules about who could touch it and who couldn’t. You have a few rules about whether it should be kept at high or low temperature, should or shouldn’t be exposed to water. You were its creator and it was, in a sense, a part of you.
Do you resist knowing the Bible because you think of it as being full of rules from a God who doesn’t really like you and is just giving you a hard time so you can’t have any fun?
Think again. He made you. You are his pride and joy. He will stop at nothing to make sure you will last forever. He made a few rules for your daily spiritual care.
He is your Creator. He loved you enough to make you, and you are a part of him. Now he wants to take care of you so that you can last forever. Can you love him back ~ your maker and the lover of your soul?
