Today’s Scripture Selection: Psalm 119:15
“I meditate on your precepts and consider your ways.”
Our minds, and hearts, and be filled with lots of things.
There is a constant flow of “input” – to use a rather technical word. Unfortunately, as the old saying goes, usually applied to computers, “garbage in; garbage out.”
So from time to time I like to turn to the musings of the Psalmist who talks about meditating on God’s precepts and considering God’s ways. That same author continues,
“I delight in your decrees; I will not neglect your word.”
That’s very sound counsel indeed.
When there is so much upon which we might meditate; so much in which we might delight – good or bad – it is good advice to be sure that we do not neglect God’s word because there we find life.
So turn off the radio or TV or computer, find a quiet place, and do a little meditating, sometime soon.
I am sure you will find something worth pondering, something worth considering, and something in which you can delight.
That’s what people have been doing for thousands and thousands of years.
And, so far, they haven’t run out of good things to find.
Prayer: Lord, open my eyes, ears, heart, and mind to you daily, may I never neglect the gift of your word. AMEN.
