By forgetting or being ignorant of the law of God, it will bring the wrath of God upon a nation. Prov 14.34. Please take notice of the following scripture from the word of God.
2 Kings 22:8-17
“ Hilkiah the high priest said to Shaphan the secretary, “I have found the Book of the Law in the temple of the Lord.” He gave it to Shaphan, who read it. 9 Then Shaphan the secretary went to the king and reported to him: “Your officials have paid out the money that was in the temple of the Lordand have entrusted it to the workers and supervisors at the temple.” 10 Then Shaphan the secretary informed the king, “Hilkiah the priest has given me a book.” And Shaphan read from it in the presence of the king.11 When the king heard the words of the Book of the Law, he tore his robes. 12 He gave these orders to Hilkiah the priest, Ahikam son of Shaphan, Akbor son of Micaiah, Shaphan the secretary and Asaiah the king’s attendant: 13 “Go and inquire of the Lordfor me and for the people and for all Judah about what is written in this book that has been found. Great is the Lord’s anger that burns against us because those who have gone before us have not obeyed the words of this book; they have not acted in accordance with all that is written there concerning us.”14 Hilkiah the priest, Ahikam, Akbor, Shaphan and Asaiah went to speak to the prophet Huldah, who was the wife of Shallum son of Tikvah, the son of Harhas, keeper of the wardrobe. She lived in Jerusalem, in the New Quarter.15 She said to them, “This is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: Tell the man who sent you to me,16 ‘This is what the Lord says: I am going to bring disaster on this place and its people, according to everything written in the book the king of Judah has read. 17 Because they have forsaken me and burned incense to other gods and aroused my anger by all the idols their hands have made,[a] my anger will burn against this place and will not be quenched.’
Nations cannot live without instruction from the bible. Matt 4.4. Such would cause us to be living as men want and not the Lord. This must be turned around, if not we will meet a sad end.

If there was one thing we could do for others, it would be to have a bible study with them.
However, that would be problematic, because many don’t understand what the bible is
and some refuse to have anything to do with this good book.
For those who don’t understand the bible, it is the word of your Creator, a gift to you,
written in two parts known as the old testament and the new testament.
The old testament was the law given to the people that came out of Egypt and it
ended at the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. The new testament is the part of the bible which is
for us today. It contains the life of Jesus and covers His purpose bringing men the word
from the Father and offering Himself as the sacrifice for the sins. In the new testament
you will learn how to begin a relationship with God and how to become a member of
His church which houses the redeemed from among the earth.
This is what we share with all interested persons who wish to know God and have their sins washed away by the blood of Christ in baptism. Let us know if we can help you.

When the cat is away, the mice do play. And so, the saying goes. It is quite often that
people will betray the trust that others have placed in them by using money,
property, automobile or some other valuable in a way that wasn’t authorized.
For example, a person is told to watch the house while the owners are on vacation.
But the house sitter brings girls over and the owner didn’t give permission.
In another situation, a person is supposed to repair a car and rather than repair or even
after the repair is done, they go joy riding in the car. The owners gave no permission for such
abuse. It is the caretakers who decided to take advantage of the owner absence.
The word of God teaches us to work for our fellow man as if we are doing the job for the
Lord Himself. Col 3.23-24. It teaches us to obey our employers.
Col 3.22. The word teaches us to treat others as we wish to be treated. Luke 6.31.
The word teaches us not to be deceitful and not to lie. 2 Cor 4.1-2 Eph 4.24
Also, the word of God, informs us that the Lord sees all the deeds of men. Heb 4.13.
When a caretaker abuses trust, he is in violation of all the above and in danger of damnation.
John 5.29. The thing to do is your duty. Don’t be deceitful behind someone back.
You wouldn’t want such done to you; so be truthful, don’t behave in an unethical manner
with trust that has been given to you. Do what is expected of you.
