It may be difficult for some people to grasp the concept that God does not make mistakes !!!Man makes mistakes and it is clear that he makes many of them. All we have to do is open our eyes and see the reality of our situation. Denial is a wonderful thing if a person does not want to admit to the truth, but it is not very productive. God may allow us to make errors in order that we learn, but we do not seem to have understood that wisdom. It is said that we learn from our mistakes and that is true, but apparently we do not learn from our mistakes because we keep making them over and over again. We must first acknowledge that our judgment was in error, and that seems to be a problem for many.
Fifty years ago, someone came up with a plan to save the world from the energy crisis and developed solar energy panels. Some people embraced the idea and one could see solar panels on the roof of many homes and businesses for a while. Then, after it was discovered that the idea did not work very well, the idea and the panels disappeared. Well, now we have a brand new idea to solve the energy problem, it is called solar panels !!!
God does not make mistakes !!! Let us use just one example of His ideas and investigate the potential benefits. God told us that man should work for six days and rest on the seventh. However, over the years, this idea lost favor with man because it is another business day and so now we have almost all of our stores and places of business open on Sunday. The reason for this is simple, greed…
Now, if we were to return to God and listen to His perfect plan and closed all businesses and stores, what would we gain? First of all, we may just get some rest, but there are many other important benefits of a day off. We would not be using our automobiles to drive to the Malls and so we reduce the gasoline consumption; we would not be using our credit cards to purchase many useless things that we have been convinced that we must have and we would have more money in our accounts; and we may discover things like books and even our children…. There are many other benefits from paying attention to the plan of God on this one point, but the benefits are obvious and also a way of reducing some of our problems that man has so much difficulty trying to solve.
It is very easy to solve all of our problems and that is simply to do it the way God told us to do things…..
