Now we can argue about the accuracy of Murphy’s Laws, but the point is, they’re humorous attempts to explain how life works. They’re observations about the relationship between actions and outcomes, between inputs and outputs. They’re principles that articulate the way things happen.
Today we’re going to look at a passage of Scripture that essentially does the same thing but in the spiritual realm. These words from the apostle Paul tell us how the Christian life works; they describe the way things happen in our walk with God. This text is one that we’d all be wise to heed in our pursuit of God.
