A miner worked long, hard hours deep in the bowels of the earth. Each night as he trekked the two mile hike home his feet felt heavier and heavier. He never complained for he knew that soon he would see the faint glint of a light his wife had set to guide his way. From far away the light shined, first just a pinpoint, but then growing larger into the full glow of a lamplight. For the miner, there was no more welcoming sight in the world. For him the light was … Home.
God’s word is as a lamp and His law a light to guide us on our way home to Him. His reproofs of instruction also assist us to keep headed toward the path and our final goal … Home!
