1 Corinthians 10:6–Now these things occurred as examples to keep us from setting our hearts on evil things as they did.
The Bible is full of examples. Over and over through scripture we see the stories of several people who either did right or did wrong. The Bible records these for us to learn from. We are to see what happens to those who set their hearts on God as well as those who don’t so we can make the right choice in our own life. It’s easier to make the right choice if we are aware of others who have been faced with the choice and we see the results of their responses.
Father, thank You for the examples in the Bible. Keep me focused on learning from them, following in their right steps and avoiding the wrong choices that they made. Thank You for not sugar coating the history recorded in the Bible, so that we can see and learn from their struggles as well as from their triumphs.
