A Perfect Summary

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.
     (Psalm 19:7-11)
