I didn’t check to verify this, but I’ve been told that Ronald Reagan once said the nine scariest words that can come out of a man’s mouth are, “I’m from the government, and I’m here to help.”
Humorous statement from the president that reflects a bit of truth about the way our government works. Jesus once spoke a nine-word sentence that troubles me at times. “If you love me, you will keep my commandments” (John 14:15, NASB).
Lord, You demonstrated Your love for us by dying in our stead. Help us demonstrate our love for You by keeping Your commandments.
