Do what the supervisor or teacher tells us to do. Be kind to others. Respect our elders.
Tell the truth. Ever go over the speed limit? Do you know anyone who has driven while intoxicated? We have heard about those who fudge on their tax returns? How about bullying, domestic abuse, adultery? When we were children it was made very clear to us that we must OBEY the rules set down by those caring for us. Please and thank you. Teacher is right. Mother and father have last word. At some point if we become parents, the process starts all over again with us now leading, teaching, guiding, counseling.
Proverbs says whoever heeds discipline shows the way of life, but whoever ignores correction leads others astray. Have you ever thought God was nudging you to do the right thing? Do what it says.

Do this so that you may prosper in all you do and wherever you go. What a blessing!! Revelation says This calls for patient endurance on the part of the people of God who keep His commands and remain faithful to Jesus. So Jesus seems to be the key to unlock the treasure chest of prosperity, knowledge and protection. When we were children, parents, teachers, pastors, etc. No worries for us!! Follow the rules and everything will be okay. We enjoyed security and protection while in their loving care. And so it is with our Heavenly Father. Psalm says Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore, will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
Set us on high!! Yes or no? But there is one who is always ABLE. Nothing is too hard for You. Perhaps we are tempted to anger, gossip, worry, fear, or jealousy. Also, so that you will be ABLE to endure. God shows us how to resist and overcome temptation.
God can do more than we can imagine with His power working in us. We have received all of this by coming to know Him, the one who called us to Himself by means of His marvelous glory and excellence. LACK — How many times and reasons in our lives have we been short or in need of something?
Perhaps knowledge, help, support, encouragement, peace. Others feel LACK if they remain single. As humans we often focus on the LACK in our lives.
What would life look and feel like if we thought about our blessings instead? The work the Egyptians forced on the Israelites was evil in motive and cruel in nature.

Work in and of itself is not wrong, but the extreme harshness was turned into a misery and oppression. We can all agree that these were a people experiencing LACK. But we are starving out here, and the only food we have is this manna. God blessed them with freedom, yet they focused on their LACK. How often do we find LACK in the middle of our blessings?
Our thoughts can become clouded and we miss what God is doing on our behalf for our well being.
God is preparing you for great things
He knows you're going through this great wilderness. These forty years the Lord Your God has been with you. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Dictionary definition of PRIEST — One authorized to perform the sacred rites of a religion especially as a mediator agent between humans and God, a man or woman of God. Hard to believe! Primarily we connect people to our Heavenly Father through prayer, sacrifice and witness. We spend time praying for our spouses, children, parents, friends, co-workers etc.
Our prayers are important. As witnesses we share love and joy. God can be seen through and in us as we reach out to others. We are also called as Jesus was to self-sacrifice. When we watch parents set themselves and their wants aside for their children, we get a good picture of Jesus. Fulfilling this call is a process. We become participants not spectators. We participate when we act, serve, share, regularly pray, and study scripture.
