A Broken Record

"He committerd the same sins as his father before him, and his heart was not right with the Lord his God, as the heart of his ancestor David had been.  (1 Kings 15:3 NLT)

   Time after time throughout the Old Testament we read the words quoted above.  In the book of Judges we read, "Once again the Israelites did what was evil in the Lord's sight."  (Judges 2:11;3:12;4:1;6:1;10:6)  The further we read the more Judges sounds like a "broken record."

   Why are we as humans so prone to repeat the same mistakes over and over again?  Wouldn't you think we'd learn the first time how to avoid thowe pitfalls?  How do we keep from becoming a "broken record?"

   The first step is to establish a relationship with God through faith in the finished work of his Son, Jesus Christ.

   The Second step is to maintain that relationship by daily walking in close fellowship with the Lord.  Our fellowship is secured by conferssion of sin and obedience to His word.

   How are you doing in your spiritual walk?  Are you spending time in the word and prayer?  As you continue your journey guard against becoming a "broken record."
