Verse of the Day

Deuteronomy 21:20
And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton, and a drunkard.
Reflections On The Scripture: This scripture reminds us of the importance of obedience, not just to our earthly parents, but to our Heavenly Father as well. Just as a child can stray away with stubborn and rebellious behavior, so can we veer off our spiritual path when we choose our own desires over God's will. The reference to gluttony and drunkenness mirrors how easily we can become engrossed in worldly pleasures and vices. Therefore, this verse is a call for self-discipline, obedience, and prioritizing God's will above our own. It's not just about surrendering to authority, but about recognizing the wisdom and guidance that comes from those who love us and want the best for us - this includes our parents and our Heavenly Father.
