Living the High Life

Miller High Life is a beer brand. It currently has an advertising campaign promoting the fact that you can enjoy a reasonably priced beer (Miller Beer) and implies that with the money you save, you can enjoy the high life, the good life, and a time of prosperity, status, and good will—all as a result of drinking Miller Beer.

We all want a good life. We want a simple life, peaceable, a life blessed with children, just enough stuff, not too much to be a burden, a respectable life, a successful life. How do we get it? In Psalm 103:17-18 is says: "But from everlasting to everlasting the Lord's love is with those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children's children-- with those who keep his covenant and remember to obey his precepts." In a nutshell it says if we obey God, His love and blessings will flow in our lives and in our children’s lives and their children’s lives…our grandkids. What’s the key? Obey God! You want a good life and you want to be a blessing to your children and grandchildren, obey God. God’s plan works. My plan doesn’t work.

Why obey? Because God says to do it. Why? So in this life we can live the true “high life” and be a blessing to our generations to come.

Obey God; Fear Him; have awesome reverence and fear and He will bless us and our descendants. Why? Because God says so. God’s blessing upon you. Amen.

Well, it's the first time I've had a beer commercial make biblical sense!
