“ Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way?
By taking heed thereto according to thy word.”
Yet again we find that action taken upon the word of God to be that necessary thing by which we may be cleansed. A young man may have opportunity to change much in his life if it be his mind, but how?
No question that we all should seek early to cleanse our way, to be turned and do that which is right, just and good; to change from our youth will spare us many years of consequence. But how can we?
“By taking heed thereto according to thy word”, this then is our answer, for there is nothing more that might cleanse us and direct us to the perfect life but by that which is done “according to thy word”; not according to my word, nor according to my thoughts, nor according to the ways of men, but according to the ways of God. He has given to us all that we need to pertain to life and godliness (2 Pet 1:3), and a blessed life (Jn 10:10). Where else can we go, he has the words of eternal life. (Jn 6:68)
