“Great peace have they which love
thy law: and nothing shall offend them.’
One day, in a very brief conversation, my grandson asked me a question. I did not get to talk with him much, so later I felt really inspired to write some things which were upon my heart, that his question had prompted. Of course I have gone into more detail than he would have had to know, but felt it was good to stir up thoughts of what he did know.
After I gave it to him to read, I remarked that I might print it some day and hoped that it would be a help to someone else. He returned it to me and I am sending it forth with a prayer that these Bible truths will be a help to some soul.
At this writing, I am 64 years of age and I feel I am living on borrowed time. In 1973, it seemed that the Lord was going to take me, but He healed me and I am doing all I can for the Lord. I recommend the Lord to every soul. He has been precious to me down through my life, with many blessings in the times of trouble and heartache.
—Sis. A. Marie Miles May, 1978
The Key to Peace
God’s Word is the key to satisfy
The heart’s inner longings.
You asked a valid question when you asked, “How do we know what is right and what is wrong?” I told you that we find the answer in the Bible as to what is right and what is wrong.
You then said, “But the Bible is a big book. Where can you find where it says a certain thing is right or wrong?” Again, that is a very valid question. I know that the Bible is a big book. I trust that the following will help you.
First, I want to say that I deeply appreciate the fact that you are interested in knowing what is wrong and right, and knowing upon what basis to place your own personal understanding. This will help you find the key to peace in your soul. Each of us is individually responsible to God. The Bible says, “For there is no respect of persons with God.” Rom. 2:11. “In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.” Rom. 2:16. “Who [or God] will render to every man according to his deeds.” Rom. 2:6. You can see we must know how to live in this world, according to the plan of God, to be cleared before the great Judge in that last day, when all men shall stand before Him.
