Sometimes you come across something that sums up what you believe, or are thinking or feeling, so nicely that all you can do as you read it is think: “YES! YES! YES!”
Most of you know that I am passionate about Christians knowing their Bible. “But why? What is the point?” some ask. Others say: “But it doesn’t have any relevance for my life or for the world today”.
Coming across Psalm 19 this week, I think it argues my case for me:
The law of the LORD is perfect, reviving the soul;
the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple;
the precepts of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart;
the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes;
the fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever;
the rules of the LORD are true, and righteous altogether.
More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold;
sweeter also than honey and drippings of the honeycomb.
Moreover, by them is your servant warned;
in keeping them there is great reward.
