The wise in heart accept commands, but a chattering fool comes to ruin.
Prov 10.8 NIV
Jesus came to earth in order to do the Father’s will, Heb 10.7. He learned obedience, Heb 5.8. As the obedient Son, “he became the source of eternal salvation to all who obey him” Heb 5.9.
At heart, the self-named progressives rebel at obedience. They are self-willed and rebellious against the will of God. They are ruthless in removing from the faith the necessity to submit to God’s rule, all the while mouthing nonsense about love, tolerance, and acceptance.
The wise submit willingly to God’s guidance. They understand that “his commandment is eternal life” Jn 12.50. They rejoice in the fairness of the Lord’s precepts, because his commands “are pure and give insight for life” Psa 19.8. The wise find delight in God’s statues, Psa 119.16. They “take pleasure” in staying on the path of Gods commands, Psa 119.35 CSB.
The wise understand that faithfulness is commitment to God’s regulations, Psa 119.30, that keeping God’s commandments is the way to know him, 1 Jn 2.3.
Your commandments are good and wise, O Lord, bless me that I might keep them, and strengthen me that I might not reject your instruction.
