Look anywhere in society and you will see that guidance in general comes overwhelmingly from worldly things. Politics, celebrities, social media, and the news largely inform societal opinions and decisions but not The Most High. It is kind of bizarre to think that the Creator of all things is not at the forefront of most lives. However, these are the times in which we live. No wonder there are so many persistent problems.
We do ourselves a disservice when we seek to understand our lives and the world without first acknowledging the Creator of it all. Have you lived a life that only gave reverence to The Most High on the day of worship? If so, you are in good company. From the first day we go to school, we are taught to think independently of The Most High. We pledge allegiance to our country, then we learn about science, math, English, and historical figures. We do not, however, learn about our Creator in most public/private school systems. When we go home and turn on the television, radio, or view social media apps on our phones we are largely seeing things that are worldly and not Godly. Then we reserve time to think about The Most High and his teachings on the day of worship. That is a life out of balance and out of order.
Let’s normalize making The Most High mainstream again as our ancestors once lived. He belongs at the forefront of our lives to guide us properly. Did our law-book not tell us to do so? In Proverbs 3:5-6, it states “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; And lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct thy paths.” That means when you are faced with any decision to make, you go to The Most High, not the news, politics, social media or anything else. We can rid the world of its ills if we can learn to be consistent with this concept alone.
