Romans 15:4(NASB) "For whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, so that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope."There, written in big bold letters, were the rules for how we were to behave in the classroom. I had been disruptive and spent the next 20 minutes standing in the corner! Today's verse is about following instructions, and in doing so, finding hope in God's Word! Back in the day, when teachers could discipline a disruptive child, I had broken the rule of not talking to others during the lesson, my punishment was to stand in the corner to learn the lesson! Today our world leaders are asking us to follow some pretty simple rules in order to keep the virus under control. Breaking the classroom rules left me only standing in the corner but if we break the rules about the coronavirus, we may bring death upon ourselves or others. Let's follow the instructions put before us, that we may have hope in our God that this will end soon! peace, tom
