(Psalm 107)

Ignorance, rebellion, spite, iniquity, adventurism, arrogance, wickedness and, in short, anything that is harmful to the human soul, and, in a word, evil, lead to hunger and thirst, gloom, affliction, bitter labor, temptation, instability, calamity, sorrow, fruitlessness, and death.

But to navigate those aspects of the Creation which are harmful to the human soul, the Creator provides His counsel, His Word, stability, fruitfulness and, in a word, a straight way, a Narrow Gate, to Himself within you.

Give thanks to the Lord for He is good, His love endures forever.

Now go see Colossians.

Or, to put it another way, make the deal, make the Covenant with God: accept His counsel, His Word, His laws and teachings, and you will navigate through the vicissitudes of the Creation and, with the power of your faith, the energy of salvation, ride the creative power, the love of God, into His peace and joy, into heaven.
