Passwords

When passwords first came out they were relatively simple.  I picked a 4 letter word that was the name of my first employee – it was kind of a joke but it stuck for a long time (it still opens my garage door).  Over time, the requirements began to change.  It must be at least 6 digits, it must have at least one numeral, it must have a capital, it can’t be the same as another password, it goes on and on.  It has gotten so complicated that I now have a file holding all of my passwords that I refer to almost daily.  Now I read an article that says people want to do away with passwords for other security means.

In one of the episodes of MASH, Radar was trying to stop artillery from our side.  Command asked for the password but the password that Radar read had changed and they were out of luck.  The 4077 was instructed to get out of there.

Can you imagine needing a password to connect with God?  Flipping through the Bible looking for the correct phrase?  Calling our pastor asking for the new code?

The body outside of His body often thinks that we speak in code and secrets.  It’s not that difficult – as Psalms 25:14 says: all we need to do is fear Him.

14 The secret of the LORD is with those who fear Him,
And He will show them His covenant.
