“If you walk in My ways…” (1 Kings 3:14).
One’s orientation comes to bear on all of life’s “situations;” the choices and decisions we face each day. Orientation is a both/and equation of genetic predisposition and the nurturing effects of social and behavioral conditioning. For the people of God, however, we are not bound by such limitations. Ours is a walk that chooses to rise above such natural inclinations; orienting our lives towards the strength of God’s resources instead of the weaknesses of our flesh.
