Psalm 119:102 I have not departed from Your judgments for You Yourself have taught me.
I hate golf. There, I said it. I hate everything about it. Jon plays golf, even, and I still hate it. If I took lessons from Tiger Woods himself, I doubt that I would come away even a par golfer. Because I hate it. The thing is, no one would blame Tiger Woods for my high score and lack of skill. It was my responsibility to learn the game.
God Himself cares enough about us, about our understanding of His laws that He personally teaches them to us. He won’t entrust that to anyone else. He sees it as that important. His laws are simple and straightforward, His path well-marked. We have no excuse, really, for not following what God gives us. It is not God’s fault or a problem with His precepts when we mess up our lives. He told us as plainly as He could.
