The Bible is a Instruction Manual for Life

Updated on October 5, 2014

Heavenly wisdom compressed in a convenient tool, a tool is in the form of a book, that book is the Holy Bible, this number one best seller for many years deserve our investigation.

It is said to be a "Manual for Life," because it holds the answers to life's questions, and gives solutions to life's problems. Lets take a short journey to discover some of the contained in this powerful book, note the following:

"Love does no wrong to anyone that's why it fully satisfies all of God's requirements. It is the only law you need." Romans 13:10 (Living Bible) Love is the law's fulfillment, it makes us better people, better people make a better world.

"Don't allow yourself to be overpowered by evil. Take the offensive, over power evil with good!" Romans 12:21 (Phillips Modern English Translation) we have the power within us to do the right thing, great benefit comes to those doing so.

"If you forgive others the wrongs they have done, your heavenly father will also forgive you, but if you do not forgive others, then the wrongs you have done will not be forgiven by your father" Matthew 6: 14, 15 (New English Bible) Forgiving others is essential for our own forgiveness.

"If anyone appears to be "religious" but cannot control his tongue, he deceives himself and we may be sure that his religion is useless" James 1:26 (Phillips Modern English) True religion, and a uncontrolled tongue are like oil and water they don't mix! Learn to control what you say with your tongue.

"He who is quickly angry will do what is foolish, but the man of good sense will have quiet" Proverbs 14:17 (The Bible in Basic English) Good sense and peace are both desired qualities.

"A quiet mind is the life of the body but envy is a disease in the bones" Proverbs 14:30 (The Bible in Basic English) Envy and jealousy will send you to any early grave, is it really worth it?

Application of this information is indeed inspiring and it is very liberating. I for one can attest to that. Why not prove it to yourself, try it, and see if it works for you. Take the time to examine this "Manual for Life," it just may make you a better person.

      True that is the case for some. It is good to remember that each person has the God give right to freedom of choice, however those who follow God' s instruction manual for life will indeed be happier!

      The Bible is indeed God's instruction manual for life - that the man and woman of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work (2 Tim 3:16-17). But so many treat it like they do the instructions for putting together a toy or a piece of furniture - they turn to God's manual, if at all, only after trying to figure things out for themselves and getting all messed up.

      "If anyone appears to be "religious" but cannot control his tongue, he deceives himself and we may be sure that his religion is useless" James 1:26 (Phillips Modern English). I've never heard of that one before. Thank you for that. Makes me wonder about certain people now...
