David Jeremiah Daily Devotional 10 June 2022 MESSAGE
Dog trainers can teach scores of tricks and commands to their animals, but most trainers say three commands are important enough to become lifesavers. The first is “Down, Stay.” If a dog is running toward the road, for example, his life may depend on his instant obedience. The second vital command is “Drop It.” Dogs put their teeth into all kinds of things. One of the greatest hazards for dogs in America is swallowing human prescription medication. A dog that understands “Drop It” may live longer for it. The third command is “Come!” A dog that runs away from its owner won’t last long.
Like our canine friends, we need to learn to respond instantly to God’s commands in Scripture. He, too, tells us “Down, Stay,” so we don’t rush headlong into temptation. He certainly tells us to “Drop It” when it comes to temptation and sinful habits. And His number one command for us? To come and follow Him.
Our obedience to God’s commandments demonstrates our love for Him.
“I wish I could mind God as my little dog minds me,” said a little boy. “He always looks so pleased to mind, and I don’t.” Charles Spurgeon
