The unfolding of your words gives light; it imparts understanding to the simple. ~Psalm 119:130
Psalm 119 is a rich text which teaches the why of reading, memorizing, and meditating on scripture. When we stray from reading God's words and memorizing His commands, we dull the Sword of the Spirit in our lives. Neglecting God's Word places ourselves at risk of succumbing to temptation, seeking selfish gain, and forgetting why we are here.
Continually, we must remind ourselves this home is temporary. God's word is the perfect daily reminder that our true home is a place called heaven.
