Good Morning April 14

In Psalm 119 is the longest of the Psalms, and many people find it too redundant and boring to read. I think we would do well to reconsider.

“Oh, how I love your law! I meditate on it all day long. Your commands make me wiser than my enemies, for they are ever with me. I have more insight than all my teachers, for I meditate on your statutes. I have more understanding than the elders, for I obey your precepts. I have kept my feet from every evil path so that I might obey your word. I have not departed from your laws, for you yourself have taught me. How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth! I gain understanding from your precepts; therefore I hate every wrong path.”(vss.97-104)

In a world where we think we know more than God does on virtually any subject, considering the writers words is a necessary correction. “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge…”(Proverbs 1:7)
