Prone

Re: Verse reading–Psalm 119:9-16; Acts 17:10-12; 2 Timothy 3:14-17 (Day Three)
“Do not let me stray from your commands.”  Songs don’t get much darker than this old hymn’s take on the fallen human condition: “Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it.”  That song gets it, and the psalmist knew it to be true long before that: The spirit might be willing, but the flesh is weaker than we thought.  Sometimes, we’d rather sin than breathe.  Our weakened selves need the words of scripture to brace us, to allow us to stand and take faltering steps Christward.  Read, read.
