Psalm 119 Session 6 If you and I were to break a bone in our body, we would not have to give our leg instructions on what to do. Naturally, our muscles would do their best to splint above and below the fracture in a completely selfish move of preservation. Selfishness described in such a way is a really good thing. I remember when my children were completely dependent on Brandy and I for everything, for food, cleaning, shelter, and I also remember thinking I can’t wait till they get a little more selfish. Let me explain, I longed for the day when both of my children could pick up their own food, could pick up a cup and drink without help. I have never met anyone that has said of their children. I hope they grow up and are better eaters than I am. Here’s the point: Psalm 119:99 “I have more understanding than all my teachers, For Your testimonies are my meditation.” My prayer for you, much like Matt Chandler, is that you would all become self-feeders as it pertains to God’s word. That you would far exceed my knowledge and understanding of His word. In a world where Biblical literacy is at an all-time low, let’s dig in together reading God’s word each day that we might leave a legacy of following God’s precepts. I was captivated by a single word Matt Chandler used when talking about reading God’s word. He said “MINING”! I know no one that mines, but I understand it might come with great frustration and even futility at times but think about the reward when that nugget appears. Digging or mining into God’s word may not produce a daily mountaintop experience; however, when we need the spiritual currency for whatever comes, God will always provide. Happy mining church!
