Wednesday’s Word – Might Makes Right

Hello All,
Well its official, I’m in the camp which thinks that all of today’s technology is preventing us from learning some extremely valuable lessons that folks readily identified with in the past. Take for instance the concept of “might”. Not the might concerned with slight possibility, the might concerned with strong persistence.

Think about it: When is the last time you had to do anything that actually took all of your might? If an instance comes to your mind quickly, trust me, you’re in the minority. I frequent my local gym and on occasion I’ve been known to move some pretty impressive weight (short limbs). In all of the years that I’ve been active in weight training, I can say that there are relatively few times where lifting a certain amount of weight took ALL of my might. But the real work that makes a difference is to keep going when I feel like quitting.

I’d suppose that when the US was more agriculturally based, people generally had more of a real concept of might. Most everybody in the family, even the children at an early age had a hand in doing the work. Some of it very hard, taxing work. No Jiffy Lube for a quick drive through oil change or tire change on the tractor – they did it themselves. People knew that sometimes it took “all of their might”, persisting to get the days work done before going to bed.

Here’s The Word;

Deuteronomy 6:5 And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.

I don’t want to conclude this sounding as if I’m complaining. Not at all. I believe that we’re blessed beyond measure with many of today’s technological advances, but it would do us well to keep I mind The Biblical admonishments and what it means to take them seriously; Even in light of things that may cloud our understanding. I pray that we would take serious effort to seek an understanding of what it means to engage “all of our might”. I believe that therein lies the keys to transform our individual lives into sweet smelling savours more pleasing to The Lord. Loving the LORD with all of our might makes right.

In Him, Cros
