I live in small town areas, by two interstates and three big towns. In this world speeding is what people do. Somehow the interstates turn people into speed demons going 85 MPH or more. It is usually fine for me to do the speed limit with little troubles as the speeders fly by.
My troubles with the speeding world begin when I am on normal highways, in town, or around construction areas. People do not want to do the speed limit. When the speed limit is 25 MPH, this is the speed I am going to do.
So how do we live in a world where breaking the rules is normal?
How can a young man keep his way pure?
By keeping it according to Your word.
With all my heart I have sought You;
Do not let me wander from Your commandments.
Your word I have treasured in my heart,
That I may not sin against You.
Blessed are You, O Lord;
Teach me Your statutes.
With my lips I have told of
All the ordinances of Your mouth.
I have rejoiced in the way of Your testimonies,
As much as in all riches.
I will meditate on Your precepts
And regard Your ways.
I shall delight in Your statutes;
I shall not forget Your word.
