Footprints No. 42

For Ezra had prepared his hear to seek the Law of the LORD, and to do it, and to teach statutes and ordinances in Israel. (Ezra 7:10 NKJV)

To seek, to do, and to teach. This is how Ezra directed his heart towards God’s commandments and words. To seek them means to under- stand, learn, and gain knowledge of it and not for popularization. To do it is to perform it zealously – to be productive in the ministry we were placed in. Use it or lose it. Practice leads to habit. “Your habits will become your character, your character will become your destiny,” as it is said. To teach is to lead, inspire, and motivate others like Ezra did. With love and zeal, he dedicated his life to lead and restore the demoralized people of Israel to rebuild the City of Jerusalem. Apostle John said, “Blessed is he that readeth and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.”
