Try to follow the ways of the Lord. Do not allow yourselves to be darkened in your understanding of him or alienated from his ways because your heart has become hardened against him or his people. Instead clothe yourselves with a robe of understanding, patience and love and you will find that you neither hunger or thirst for what is right………..
